1) A man in PA killed his wife and daughter, then himself. “Some said they had never seen Mary Scully or her adult daughter, who was disabled.” TW: Filicide.https://t.co/CXayRz9NBW

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.”
