Created as a commentary on the Abortion Industry in the United States, this piece is a play on Shepard Fairey’s famous print, “HOPE,” which had enormous effect in the 2008 election to sway many voters to vote for President Obama.
I think the idea that Science describes the past, but Art predicts the future is very important in considering the thin line between art as prediction and art as promotion.

For this reason, the image of an aborted child is more accurate a depiction of the future that Obama promises to voters rather than the very general idea of “HOPE” which many would argue is intentionally vague and completely unrealized.
Hopefully this piece will serve as a warning and a call to action. 55 Million babies have been aborted since the legalization of abortion in the United States. You can check stats at
