From David Ripley, Idaho Chooses Life
What strange times we live in. The Yale Daily News reported that a student at that once prestigious campus produced video recordings of self-induced abortions as part of her senior art project. The young woman claimed that she had repeatedly impregnated herself using donated sperm over the past year â€“ so she could film numerous self-abortions in her bathtub using various herbal abortifacients.
Once she presented her video to the Senior Art Project Forum â€“ revulsion spread across the campus, resulting in a newspaper story by the student paper. In an interview, Ms. Shvarts claimed that her â€œperformance artâ€ was designed to encourage debate about the relationship between art and the human body.
Campus officials decided to investigate and, when confronted, Aliza Shvarts claimed that it was all just an elaborate hoax.
Probably so. Yet the thinking and moral numbness behind this dark episode is obviously disturbing. How could an otherwise intelligent young woman show such disregard for the human destruction and suffering involved in abortion?
The truth is, such sociopathic behavior must be expected in a culture which denies the humanity of preborn children for the sake of convenience. Planned Parenthoodâ€™s propaganda campaign â€“ in which human beings are just â€œblobs of tissueâ€ â€“ has taken hold.
Can the masters of the culture be so certain that they can keep the beast contained?
