Disgusting Description of a C-Section. Is this legit?

An obstetrician describes a repeat C-section (a ninth). It is pretty gross.

I've had three C-sections. There are details in his description that I didn't know about.

I think this is scare-mongering (because some people have an ideological bias against c-sections for lots of reasons (including fetal welfare)-- no joke!) But I think this kind of information is necessary.

Millions of women get c-sections every year. Should women be told what the surgery consists of?

Should this be said in an effort to discourage women from C-sections?

C-sections are actually pretty controversial. So I expect a variety of opinions.

And if giving this information on c-sections is okay, why shouldn't it be available for abortions?
