Ireland's horror operation victims speak out

Al Jazeera investigates why a brutal medical technique used on some women during childbirth has only just come to light.

    Women’s rights campaigners in Ireland are demanding justice for victims of what they describe as a brutal medical practice, used in some hospitals for years, and yet is hardly known about. 

    It involves sawing through a woman’s pelvic bone and cartilage during a difficult childbirth.
