Typical of the liberal thinking about eugenics/lobotomy at the time, Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK had his own daughter Rosemary lobotomized. She was a sweet soul but a slow learner with a low IQ, so she was perfect candidate to be "changed by "scientific means". The butchery stopped when she became completely detached, losing her very being to liberal tinkering. She lived out her life in an institution hidden from sight and years later guilt ridden Eunice started the Special Olympics.
The moral of the story is: Beware of democrats telling you they know how to provide you health care.
