Update: Was it a hoax? Yale is saying yes, but the student involved maintains that she did in fact try to inseminate herself and did in fact take abortifacient drugs. Whether she was successful remains an open question, but the intent seems genuine enough.
How extreme is this “art project?” So extreme that the head of NARAL condemned it today.

This story is everywhere today:
Beginning next Tuesday, (Yale Senior Aliza) 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.
If you have any question about what kind of person thinks abortion is art, you can watch this video of Aliza speaking at a “Soapbox Event.”
Notice how she speaks for almost five minutes without saying a single thing which is new, profound, or artfully phrased. It’s almost as bad as watching Bill Maher. She concludes her artless ramble with this:
Think. We need to think more creatively about this. I think this is the realm of art. I think people have to be, like…stop being so dismissive of what art is. It has to stop hanging on the wall. It has to be something lived, breathed everyday.
Ironic then that her senior project is about destroying nascent human life and insuring it never lives or breaths.
The fundamentalist church of Mormons that was in the news recently isn’t the only creepy cult brainwashing children with sexualized absurdity. You can add Yale’s art department to that list.
