But, this is obscene beyond belief.
Beginning next Tuesday, [Art major Aliza] Shvarts [’08] 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.
Is human life merely a toy to be extinguished upon a whim? Of no more importance than a tube of paint?
Is it proper to begin a human being with the INTENT to destroy it?
This was not an accident. This was not a pregnancy gone wrong. This did not threaten the mother's health. This was not a case of rape or incest. This was not a sudden misfortune making the mother unable to care for a child. This was not a child perhaps being born into an unloving relationship. This was not even - what, to my mind was the most inexcusable reason for an abortion - a change of heart.
No, this was none of these things or any of the other reasons given to allow abortion.
This was a cruel, evil woman who intentionally became pregnant for the specific PURPOSE of terminating it.
Murder most foul.
This reprehensible thing known as Shvarts is using oxygen that could be better used by the most vile child molester.
