Famine in Somalia
"The region is experiencing its worst drought in 60 years. Food prices have skyrocketed. The world’s largest refugee camp, Dadaab in Kenya, is several hundred thousand people over capacity. It is experiencing a death rate 15 times above what is normal.”
Why autistic people don't like Autism Speaks
Another huge reason why autistics hate Autism Speaks is their film “Autism Every Day”, in which they film their then-Executive Vice President, Alison Tepper Singer, saying that when her daughter was first diagnosed, she seriously contemplated driving her car, with her autistic daughter inside, off a bridge. Her only reason for not acting on this, according to her own statements, was that she had a neurotypical daughter waiting for her at home who needed her. By her own admission, apparently, she would have preferred to murder her own child than to have an autistic child. There are parents who actually HAVE murdered their children and claimed that it was a mercy killing because said child was autistic.
