Abortion As Art & A Thing Of Beauty


Beginning next Tuesday, Shvarts will be displaying her senior art project, a documentation of a nine-month process during which she artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood from the process.

***UPDATE: Yale claims this to be a "creative fiction" while Aliza Shvarts holds that her claims are true.***

A different spin on this can be found here.

That is just sick and wrong!! Even if she realy is "acting" she should not be alowed to do that in a public place. Or any place for that matter.
