Abortion[edit]

If anyone wants to have a discussion about how this organizations position on abortion should be used on the article, this is the place to do it. We must take particular care not to mischaracterize their position as stated in a self published source.  little green rosetta(talk)

Please see the edit I just made. I quoted more of the source for accuracy. Ideally, we would find a secondary source from which to draw. - MrX 17:57, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Pink triangles[edit]

I've removed part of a sentence that read:

MassResistance has claimed that no homosexuals died in the Holocaust of World War II, that the "pink triangle the Nazis forced imprisoned gays to wear actually signified Catholic priests..."

...as I can't find a WP:RS for the quote. There seems to be a misquote somewhere along the line - in this article on the SPL, it quotes a member of MassResistance saying this:

"During legislative testimony supporting the amendment, Camenker falsely claimed that no homosexuals died in the Holocaust and that the pink triangle the Nazis forced imprisoned gays to wear actually signified Catholic priests". 

But in the link to that quote, another article on the SPL site, Camenker actually says something rather different (though no less inflammatory):

"While we cannot say that homosexuals caused the Holocaust, we must not ignore their central role in Nazism," Lively and Abrams add. "To the myth of the 'pink triangle' — the notion that all homosexuals in Nazi Germany were persecuted — we must respond with the reality of the 'pink swastika.'" 

The first SPL quote has been echoed in a few other places online, but it appears to be a misquote by the SPL, and I can't find any WP:RS online of Camenker or anyone else from MR saying that the Nazis actually used the pink triangle for Catholic priests. Since we're straying into WP:BLP territory with a controversial quote from a living person, we need better sourcing before that original quote can be added back in, or else a correction of what was actually said.
