Hey there. What's with this woman from Yale claiming to have impregnated herself 9 times and forced her body to miscarry each and every time for the sake of art. I call complete bull shit on this. I understand that people will some pretty weird things in the name of art but this is not art. This is just plain wrong. I don't know if she's doing this for her 15 mins of fame, considering that the shock value is so high. Yale has come out and quickly attempted to squash the whole thing by saying that the student, Aliza Shvarts, was submitting her work as "creative fiction" while Shvarts, herself, claims it was very real. Supposedly, she received semen samples from males, only god knows how, and she inseminated herself, my best guess would be with a turkey baster if she wasn't doing the guys, and on the 28th day after her mentrual cycle, she would ingest these herbal abortion remedies for force a miscarriage. She video taped the whole thing and collected blood samples. She did this for a total of 9 months. 9 months!!! She plans on showcasing her "exhibit" by having her blood swirl around some thing hanging from a ceiling and her videos playing on walls. Is this woman screwed up in the head? Would you want to display the intentional killings of an unborn? And for what? To claim it as art?
