She [Aliza Shvarts] said she was not concerned about any medical effects the forced miscarriages may have had on her body. The abortifacient drugs she took were legal and herbal, she said, and she did not feel the need to consult a doctor about her repeated miscarriages.

I'm really glad she's not concerned, because I don't really want her to have a long and happy life anyway. For everyone else's information, just because a drug is "legal and herbal" does not mean that abusing it by unnecessary and repeated use is safe. She may not have felt "the need to consult a doctor" then, but she has a good chance of feeling "the need" in the future, when she develops complications from her insane endeavour.

The display of Schvarts’ project will feature a large cube suspended from the ceiling of a room in the gallery of Green Hall. Schvarts will wrap hundreds of feet of plastic sheeting around this cube; lined between layers of the sheeting will be the blood from Schvarts’ self-induced miscarriages mixed with Vaseline in order to prevent the blood from drying and to extend the blood throughout the plastic sheeting.

Schvarts will then project recorded videos onto the four sides of the cube. These videos, captured on a VHS camcorder, will show her experiencing miscarriages in her bathrooom tub, she said. Similar videos will be projected onto the walls of the room.

This is incredibly disgusting, for reasons having nothing to do with the issue of whether or not human life begins at conception.
