But she insists it's not about "shock value" ...

This is probably the most disgusting thing I've read about in years:

For senior, abortion a medium for art, political discourse.

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.
Some of us pro-choice social conservatives (yeah, we do exist) have been saying for years that the scare tactics used by the Democrats in the abortion debate belittles the seriousness of the issue and leads to poor choices by the very people the abortion regime is supposed to help.

Reminds me of a quote by Abbott Lawrence Lowell:
"Of course there's a lot of knowledge in universities: the freshmen bring a little in; the seniors don't take much away, so knowledge sort of accumulates."
