YALE SHOCKER!… Abortion Artist's Profs Will Be Disciplined
WOAH!… This really is a shocker–
The instuctor and advisor of the Yale abortion artist Aliza Shvartz will be disciplined for approving the grotesque senior abortion art exhibit.

However, Yale is also making the student sign a written statement that the art project was a hoax before they will allow it to be displayed.
FOX News reported:
Yale University has threatened to pull a senior student’s controversial “abortion art” project from an exhibition Tuesday unless she admits she lied about artificially inseminating herself and self-inducing miscarriages to produce the piece.
The Ivy League school stood by its claim Monday that Aliza Shvarts fabricated a shocking work of “creative fiction” in detailing how she constructed her senior art project.
“In this case, we will not permit her to install the project unless she submits a clear and unambiguous written statement that her installation is a work of fiction: that she did not try to inseminate herself and induce miscarriages, and that no human blood will be physically displayed in her installation,” Yale College Dean Peter Salovey said in a statement released Monday.
Under normal circumstances, Shvarts’ work would be displayed at the School of Art for “critique and discussion” with a faculty committee, according to Salovey.
Shvarts did not respond Monday to requests for comment.
Salovey said that after he and School of Art Dean Robert Storr conducted an investigation, they determined two faculty members made “serious errors of judgment” and should be disciplined for the part they played.
“In one case, the instructor responsible for the senior project should not have allowed it to go forward,” he said. “In the other, an adviser should have interceded and consulted others when first given information about the project. Appropriate action has been taken in these two cases.”
He didn’t specify what the nature of the action was, nor did he name the faculty members. The Yale Daily News, which broke the story last week, reported that the faculty members likely were Shvarts’ thesis adviser, lecturer Pia Lindman; and Henk van Assen, the art school’s director of undergraduate studies.
Question: This makes too much sense. What’s up?
Bonus Question: How much will Aliza make off her abortion “art” tape?
Not all students were amused…
