Murder of Disabled Family Members

This tweet is a small thread of resources on filicide in response to a recent story from PA. In Chicago, of course, folks are discussing the suicide of a woman who murdered her autistic son. I choose not to link to her story, as the press coverage is full of sympathy for her.

Let's instead think about a society so ableist in which a disabled adult and her mother are "never seen."
