Autistic and disabled people murdered by parents or "care"givers - it also happens in Australia

On the eve of March 30th, which is in the United States a national day of mourning for disabled people murdered by family members and caregivers, I'd like to draw your attention to the horrible case of "Ebony", an Australian autistic girl who was slowly starved to death by her parents, while under the "care" of the NSW Department of Community Services (DoCS). A warning - don't even think about reading this article if you're not feeling very emotionally robust, because it will certainly not make your day any cheerier.
