Daily Deviation

Given 2010-08-22
Abortion by ~Amelee This piece caught my eye way back when it was first submitted and becoming a GM has given me the chance to revisit it. Whatever your view on the issue expressed in this Deviation the idea and the concept is bound to take over for even a second as you view this very poignant and powerful message. ( Featured by Kaz-D )

So deep and edgy :iconemo-plz: Truly not idiotic or overly-dramatized whatsoever.

the kind of pic that makes the viewer halt and gaze with slack jaw; unlike pictures of abortions fraught with gore and blood, this makes its point without drama; there's a chilling ennui, a disregard; as though the Auschwitz site were razed to build a highway or a shopping mall

some submissions have hyperlinks to share them on a social networking site; I wish I could do that here; but I don't see such a link; I assume this is the preference of the artist, and will respect her wishes

I find the woman's dead panned expression amusing. I giggled a bit.

I really wish people would stop freaking out about this. Art is about expressing yourself and that is what this artist has done. Also at NO POINT did the artist ever say that she thought ALL abortions were like this girl here. This is just one photo and she should be allowed to freely express herself. I was raped and had to go through this type of choice myself and I do not take offense to this picture. Not all abortion is like this photo but I do know some people who do treat abortion like this and it's unfortunate. If anything I respect the artist for having the courage to post something so very different and controversial. It's powerful and composed. I love it.

I take a lot of offense to this, and I don't think this deserves a DD. It is a generalization of what abortion is, and a very bad one.

But the generalization is true.

There are boundaries within art, 'bro'. You can present anything and it can be considered art, even if it's a picture of your shit. What makes a piece truly artistic is the meaning behind it, the emotions it evokes.
Also, I never said this wasn't artistic, moron, I said this was offensive because it wasn't correct.

there's no such thing as wrong in art. It's a matter of expression.  And if you got offended, you have to look at things more rationally because not everything circulates in a single belief
