Abortion Artiste Update: Faaake!
Update: And Now It's Real Again?

Performance art, the NYSun reports.

I actually believe them, but note this is really is, at heart, only her claim:

"Ms. Shvarts is engaged in performance art," a Yale spokeswoman, Helaine Klasky, said. "She stated to three senior Yale University officials today, including two deans, that she did not impregnate herself and that she did not induce any miscarriages. The entire project is an art piece, a creative fiction designed to draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman’s body."

If there's evidence it was faked, it's not being presented nor even described.

Correction: The ink and Vaseline was half-misread and half made up in my own head. The article doesn't say how she faked it. Presumably it was (supposedly now) just menstrual blood.

Thanks to See-Dub for asking about that.

Just a Prank? Via See-Dub (now aboard on Michelle Malkin's blog), it looks like this was just a pure pranking. Punking as art. Her "art" apparently consisted of hoax press releases only, or at least that's what this statement by Yale suggest.

Caught in Punking: Now the deranged "artist" is claiming Yale is lying and covering up, and that her "art" is in fact real, and she did everything she claimed to.

She says only she does not know if she was ever pregnant, but she took all the steps to make herself so.

I don't know. Now this back-and-forth dueling press release thing can be part of the "art" too and I grow bored and just want them all to die in a fire.
