Abortion "art project"

This news item can serve as the poster child for my tag category of "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot":
A Yale University art student is causing a national controversy with her senior art project that revolves around self-induced abortions. Aliza Shvarts says she artificially inseminated herself “as often as possible" in order to become pregnant and reportedly used herbs to cause abortions. Shvarts, a senior art major, intentionally caused the death of the babies with the herbs.

Afterwards, she allegedly saved her blood and the blood from each of the babies she killed to create an art display. Shvarts mixed Vaseline with the blood to prevent it from drying and placed the blood between sheets of plastic wrapped around the cube that hung from the ceiling.

But that was yesterday's news. According to a statement released by the university today, Aliza Shvarts ’08 was never impregnated. She never miscarried. The supposed senior art project of the Davenport College senior was a “creative fiction.”
Oh, and by the way, "Shvarts said she did not intend the project to have "shock value" or to generate controversy." Right.
