I've wanted to write this [THREAD] for a long time.
After mentioning it to @mountainherder and @pptsapper , I can't back down. This is the story a #woman, a #soldier, a #hero.
I would like to take the time to tell you about the life of an unlikely and forgotten hero.
A mixed race, #Muslim woman who took on the most dangerous job of #WW2 to defend a certain idea of freedom. Noor-un-Nissa Inayat Khan.
But before I tell you about her, I need to tell you about her father because I do think that his life had a part in the courageous choices that his daughter would make.

Homicide always requires a certain hubris: a pride that vaunts the "wants" or "needs" of the killer over the life of the killed.

That hubris is now on display with a posting from "Auntie Lynn."
That posting directs itself to the women of Georgia (and other States adopting "#heartbeat" #abortion restrictions).

The posting pretends to be an invitational note from an old Auntie who lives in New York. Well, no, it is an invitation so it isn't a pretense in that respect.
The pretense is that it comes from one's Aunt rather than from folks involved in #murdering #uterine #children for hire. Auntie Lynn wants poor repressed mothers in #Georgia and elsewhere to know that #abortions will still be available to them in #NewYork.
