I get angry all over again every time I read this story.

This is incredible. I have been in this field for almost 30 years and always believed this was a procedure performed in rural areas of 3rd world countries where c-sections were not an option. This is an incredibly barbaric procedure and I am amazed it was performed so recently in Ireland. It speaks volumes about these peoples' opinion of women that this would be preferable to an operation that "might" result in a woman to have fewer children in the end.

I guess the "Intelligent Design" god that made us could not figure out how to make women have babies without breaking their pelvises in some cases.

Or maybe he planned it that way for the lulz because the Abrahamic god reads as a mother*&&^ insane god, if it is real. I recall it is religious dogma that women have to hurt in child birth as reminders of Eve's original sin.

Anesthetics during childbirth:

In 1846 James Simpson, a Scottish physician promoted the use of chloroform to relieve pain during childbirth. This was opposed by the Church, citing Genesis 3:16 "...I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children". The avoidance of pain was seen as thwarting God's will.
