How Would You Decide the Future of 10 Year Old Sarah Murnaghan?


I’m sure we’re all familiar with the news story of the little ten year old girl Sarah Murnaghan that is in dire need of a lung transplant. After researching as much as I could, and examining both sides of the story (and my conscious,) I’m thankful I don’t have to be the one to rule on the final decision.

I fully understand the mothers plea for help for her daughter. I also understand HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s the department’s stance on the matter. I have children of my own, so of course I can appreciate those who lean toward making an exception to the rule, and placing her first on the list. On the other hand, if one of the forty people (In Pennsylvania alone) who are already on the transplant list was one of my relatives, I wonder how I would feel that exceptions were being made, and question if this is not turning into a case by case situation.

Unable to come up with a solution to this problem, I’m wondering how you feel about it. Put yourself in that person’s place who has to make the final decision. Which way would you decide?
