Abortion is Normal art exhibition

New York City is hosting an art exhibition entitled Abortion is Normal from 9-30 January 2020 in two locations. The artwork on display has raised the ire of certain right-wing Christian sites, calling the works “crude, profane or vulgar in nature”. Some of the works can be seen at Artsy.

Go to the site and look. Some of the works are not great art but the message comes across that women are the arbiters of their own fortunes; the owners of their own bodies.  I find some of the work powerful and provocative.

Look at some of the fundamentalist criticism here:

What is your opinion? Is this artwork profane and vulgar or is it a legitimate cry for women’s autonomy?
