Art major Aliza Shvarts ’08 wants to make a statement.When no one defends a standard, there is none. When everything is something; something does not exist.
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.
The goal in creating the art exhibition, Shvarts said, was to spark conversation and debate on the relationship between art and the human body.
We can talk about a few things here. First, she did not miscarry - to say so is to vomit in the face of those who have gone through a miscarriage. No, she aborted. What once was, will never be. Not by accident. Not by mistake. By deliberation. By intent.
The damage she has done to her physical and mental future is an abomination. Simple.
She will one day have to get a job. She will one day have to meet new people and friends. She will one day look for a partner in life. She will, perhaps, become a mother. She will, one day, as her mind matures and he perspective deepens - have to reflect about what others let her move forward with with a morally-neutral nod.
Though she has a curious little book out, and a background in nothing, and seem to have a thing with her body's natural cycle - you have to pause and, if it is your nature, perhaps say a prayer for her.
We can also talk about the fact that someone is paying Yale money for this; but that is a real minor issue in the end analysis.
Want a snap-shot of the cultural rot at the core of our society's "elite."
God & Man at Yale? God; indeed.
UPDATE: Allah thinks, with some sound medical perspectives, that it might be a stunt. If so, it is almost - almost as bad. Want to put a face to the damaged woman, Michelle and GatwayPundit have it. Check out Rusty as well. Awwww, what the heck. I'll let the woman speak for herself.
Not a McCain voter, I would guess. She really needs to get out and see the world a bit.
In the end, I feel more pity than anything else.
UPDATE II: Yep, hoak. Yale called her bluff, they must have found an adult. Sick chick.
Or maybe not a hoax - or a maybe hoax. Either way, sick chick.
