Update on the Strange and Politically Motivated Editing at Margaret Sanger Wikipedia

Yesterday, we highlighted the following criticism of the Margaret Sanger Wikipedia page:

Hell, this whole article is a glowing review of Margaret:

Many who are opposed to the legalization of abortion frequently condemn Sanger by questioning her fitness as a mother and criticizing her views on race, abortion, and eugenics.[61][62][note 8] In spite of such attacks, Sanger continues to be regarded as an icon for the American reproductive rights movement and woman's rights movement.

in other words, many who dislike her say this, but these attacks haven't diminished her as a saint. Yes, let's reduce any controversies surrounding her to a blurb. A blurb that claims people only bring these claims up because they are opposed to abortion. Not because, you know, they're opposed to racism and eugenics. I'm just surprised at the wording and the way this entire article dismisses any valid critiques of her as coming from people that dislike abortion and women.


Check out what happened today when someone tried to make a very common sense edit:

One-word neutral term 'critics' quickly rejected[edit]

I just tried to change "Many who are opposed to the legalization of abortion" to "Critics" (giving the reason --- "Removed implication of motive and substituted a more neutral term"), and within minutes it was changed back. The reason given was "In this case it is relevant to tell who are her critics."
All her critics, or just many of them? Come on now. By attributing criticisms of her eugenics and alleged racism to "Many who are opposed to the legalization of abortion" you're ignoring other possible reasons for the criticism unrelated to abortion. The implication is that these criticisms are trumped up charges, and need not be considered on their own merits.
I believe simply using the word 'critics' is the best and most objective description, but if others insist on emphasizing something that people already know, or would assume to be the case (that many opponents of the legalization of abortion criticize Sanger in various ways), I suggest saying, "Many who are opposed to the legalization of abortion, as well as others,..." — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:41, 25 December 2013 (UTC)


We  have noted before our own problems with the Margaret Sanger Wiki page:

The Wikipedia entry on Margaret Sanger crack us up.  It states, in pertinent part, the following:

In 1926, Sanger gave a lecture on birth control to the women's auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey.[37] ... Sanger's talk was well received by the group, and as a result, "a dozen invitations to similar groups were proffered."[37]

The first noteworthy thing is that nowhere in the Margaret Sanger autobiography does Sanger state that she spoke to the Ku Klux Klan about "birth control."  The "birth control" line has just been thrown in to her Wikipedia entry by Planned Parenthood types to try and soften the blow for those reading for the first time about Margaret Sanger and the Ku Klux Klan.  

Imagine the surprise the typical Feminist Studies major experiences when she first stumbles across the uncomfortable fact that her hero was invited to speak to various hate groups 13 different times.  Woops, Professor Feminazi never mentioned that one in class.  Let's just label these invites "birth control lectures," right?

The truth is important and we can not let Klanned Parenthood propagandists make up their own history.  If you want accurate info, check out the following:
