On todays Morning Focus Marian Egan was in studio for John Cooke. Marian began the show by speaking to Marie O'Connor - Survivors of symphysiotomy Chairperson as the government announced a redress scheme for the women who underwent the surgical procedure. However Survivors of symphysiotomy are disappointed at the Government's handling of 'this particular abuse of women in childbirth'. Marie O'Connor, Chairperson of SoS, said: 'Truth has been the main casualty. The official lie, that symphysiotomy was acceptable medical practice, continues. The draft whitewash report commissioned by the Department of Health has now been reissued: all of its defective findings still stand, apparently'.
