Romney Endorsed by, Praised Dr. John Willke, Leading Proponent of Idea That Rape Lowers Pregnancy Risk

August 21, 1012

Dr. John Wilke, (click title to entry - thank you) a Founder of the Pro-Life Movement Nationally and Internationally Endorses Gov. Romney

Saturday, Oct. 20, 2007

Mitt Romney distanced himself Monday from embattled Missouri Rep. Todd Akin over the Republican senate candidate's assertion that "legitimate rape" causes women to "shut down" conception.

"He should understand that his words with regards to rape are not words that I can defend, that we can defend, or that we can defend him," Romney told WMUR during a campaign swing through New Hampshire.

But this isn't the first time a member of the Republican Big Tent has asserted this, and in 2007 presidential candidate Mitt Romney sought and won the endorsement of the man who has since the mid-1980s promoted the scientifically baseless idea that rape doesn't lead to pregnancy, Dr. John C. Willke.

Hailing him as "The Father Of The Pro-Life Movement" and "an important surrogate for Governor Romney's pro-life and pro-family agenda," the Romney for President campaign in 2007 welcomed Willke's endorsement....

Alaska always goes red. I thought I'd see if there was any voter oppression in Alaska.

No problem being registered for the first time or any time after that, just mail, fax or email the application...

Initially Registering from Outside the State of Alaska

If you are not already registered to vote in Alaska and you are initially registering to vote from outside the state of Alaska, either by mail, fax or email, you must provide proof of Alaska residency by submitting a copy of one of the following documents with your voter registration application:...

When I was reading the main page of the Alaska cite, (click here) I realized in the practice of law faxing is a legitimate method of sending documents. Mail of course is standard. And the more I thought about email I remembered people are granted divorces because of emails and the reliability of electronic signatures. Oh, wait a minute, there was a problem with electronic signatures when it came to mortgages, huh? 

Hm. I suppose Alaska justifies its loose regulations because of the square miles in Alaska. Makes sense. But, if this is good for Alaska and they are always Red in elections, what the heck is wrong with Pennsylvania and Ohio?

Reporting rape in the USA is demonized. Celebrity rapes have proven to women they are fools for coming forward.

1 out of every 6 American women (click here) has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed rape; 2.8% attempted rape).
17.7 million American women have been victims of attempted or completed rape....

When women are ridiculed for being self-affirming in their understanding of the world, they retreat.


Young women, low-income women and some minorities (click title to entry - thank you) are disproportionately victims of domestic violence and rape. Women ages 20-24 are at greatest risk of nonfatal domestic violence, and women age 24 and under suffer from the highest rates of rape. The Justice Department estimates that one in five women will experience rape or attempted rape during their college years, and that less than five percent of these rapes will be reported. Income is also a factor: the poorer the household, the higher the rate of domestic violence -- with women in the lowest income category experiencing more than six times the rate of nonfatal intimate partner violence as compared to women in the highest income category. When we consider race, we see that African-American women face higher rates of domestic violence than white women, and American-Indian women are victimized at a rate more than double that of women of other races.
This GOP is very hostile toward women. They cannot deny that.

The Violence Against Women Act (click here) breezed through the Congress in previous years, but it's suddenly a heavy lift. The GOP House passed its version of the bill on a largely party-line vote, but getting to yes with the Senate will be tough.
A day of dramatic, emotional debate in the House of Representatives gave way to a narrow but largely partisan vote to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act on Wednesday.
VAWA, passing 222-205 with 23 Republicans in opposition and six Democrats in favor, will now join another once-uncontroversial measure – the transportation bill – in a conference committee between the two chambers.
The act provides some $660 million in funding over five years for programs ranging from protecting victims of domestic violence and community violence prevention to legal aid for survivors of violence.  Historically a light political lift, VAWA breezed through Congress in its two prior reauthorizations....
