Cesarian section

From Conservapedia

A cesarian section is a medical procedure where an unborn baby is delivered from the womb through surgical incision and outside removal rather than going through the birthing canal. In modern civilizations, this procedure is usually performed if it is believed there could be a danger to the mother or child to go through the regular birthing process.

It is rumored that Julius Caesar was born this way, hence the name of the term.
