Lombotomy. I knew what it meant, and how cruel it was, and that Rosemary Kennedy had one at the age of 23 (under orders of her father because the "mildly retarded girl" was newly interested in boys), and she was incapacitated for the rest of her life. It seemed to me, to be such a cruel, deliberate injury of the brain for the sake of making someone 'easier to deal with', but I had NO idea how cruel lombotomies really were. She lived out her life in a Wisconsin institution and died January 7, 2005, at the age of 86. Her sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founded the Special Olympics in her honor in 1968. Read on...


..A lobotomy (Greek: lobos: Lobe of brain, tomos: "cut/slice") is a form of psychosurgery, also known as a leukotomy or leucotomy (from Greek leukos: clear or white and tomos meaning "cut/slice"). It consists of cutting the connections to and from the prefrontal cortex. In one popular technique, a medical instrument known as an ice-pick due to its similarity to a normal ice-pick was passed through the eye-socket and struck with a mallet until the right position was reached.

These procedures result in major personality changes beyond what is desired, and can cause severe mental disabilities. Lobotomies were used mainly in the 1930s to 1950s to treat a wide range of severe mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, clinical depression, and various anxiety disorders, as well as people who were considered a nuisance by demonstrating behavior characterized as, for example, "moodiness" or "youthful defiance". The patient's informed consent in the modern sense was not obtained. After the introduction of the antipsychotic Chlorpromazine (Thorazine), lobotomies fell out of common use[1] and the procedure has since been characterized "as one of the most barbaric mistakes ever perpetrated by mainstream medicine. The general statistics showed roughly a third of lobotomy patients improved, a third stayed the same, and the last third actually got worse!
