Yale student impregnates herself to create miscarriages — for art

It's hard to believe it's real. The Communists of the 30's and 40's decreed that "art is a weapon," bludgeoning any dissenting artist that dared declare the heresy "art for art's sake." This view of "art" as a tool to assault morality and cultural norms eventually became taken up as the liberal cause du jour.

A female undergraduate from Yale University has taken that mantra taken farther than ever before.
"Beginning next Tuesday, [art major 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."
Notes Tom Piatak: "Although Ms. Shvarts' view of art would have puzzled such as Michelangelo and Raphael, her thoughts are in line with those who defended taxpayer funding of such stellar examples of contemporary 'art' as 'Piss Christ' and the photographs of Robert Mapplethorpe."
