Contrary to a recent report, a University of Missouri Libraries spokeswoman said Thursday the removal of a poster of birth-control activist Margaret Sanger was not a response to an anti-abortion protest.

Mizzou Students for Life, an anti-abortion group, asked the library on Feb. 27 to remove the poster of Sanger. Sanger often is credited with opening the first birth control clinic in the United States and serving as the first president of the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
