BOMBSHELL: Romney Met with Todd Akin’s Dr. Jack Willke During 2012 Campaign

Thursday, August 23, 2012

BOMBSHELL! Mitt Romney met Dr. Jack Willke, the physician behind Rep. Todd Akin’s medically incorrect and controversial views on rape and abortion during the 2012 election campaign and told him they agreed on “almost everything,” Dr. Willke says.

The UK Telegraph reports:

Dr. Jack Willke, a prominent anti-abortion campaigner, claims to be an authority on the theory espoused by Rep. Todd Akin that claims victims of what the Republican congressman called “legitimate rape” do not become pregnant because their bodies “shut down” due to the trauma.

The 87-year-old physician endorsed Romney’s 2008 Republican presidential nomination and was one of his official campaign surrogates. ”I am proud to have the support of a man who has meant so much to the pro-life movement,” Romney said at the time.

But both Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan — his vice presidential running mate, have denounced remarks made by Rep. Akin and Dr. Willke has been given no role in Romney’s 2012 campaign and surrogates stress that the candidate disagrees with his theory on rape.

However, Dr. Willke told The Daily Telegraph that he did meet Mr Romney during a presidential primary campaign stop in the doctor’s home in Cincinnati last October. Local news reports at the time noted the two men held “private meetings” during the visit.

“He told me ‘thank you for your support – we agree on almost everything, and if I am elected President I will make some major pro-life pronouncements’,” Dr. Willke said in a telephone interview on Tuesday.

Dr. Jack Willke, a political ally of Rep. Todd Akin posited the theory in a 1985 book which claimed when a woman is raped her fallopian “tubes are spastic”, preventing conception. Mainstream scientific literature rejects the crackpot theory. In fact, studies show rapes result in tens of thousands of pregnancies in the U.S. per year.

    Almost everything? Willard agrees with almost everything Dr. Jack ‘the quack’ Willke says? What does Willard disagree with? Wearing white after Labor Day? These men are extremely anti-women and a threat to our safety. I deeply and sincerely hope the American voters reject the Romney/Ryan ticket on Nov. 6th.

  2. Joe in Colorado says:

    I agree Feminazi. Romney, Ryan, Akin and Dr. Jack Willke have profound issues with women. They don’t seem to hate the other half of human race as much as they think they can control them and their bodies and their views have a Biblical basis. These are dangerous politicians.

  3. Sally says:

    They are dangerous. I keep trying to reason with a Texas niece about them, but she hates Obama so much she would vote for Hitler, I think. And she might…these two are close.

  4. The Real Adam says:

    So Willard agreed with Dr. Jack Willke before he disagreed with him?

    Isn’t this Willard’s problem from the beginning? He doesn’t have a firm position on anyone or on any issue until he sticks his index finger in his mouth and holds the moist digit up to the wind. He doesn’t have blood in his veins — he has Quicksilver coursing through his body. He stands for nothing.

  5. Brigadoon says:

    Dr. Jack Willke is tightly wrapped around Mitt Romney. In fact, when Willke ejaculates, Romney gets a venereal disease. 😉

  6. Matteo says:

    Did you happen to catch this?

    Republican National Convention Platform, Kansas Secretary of State and Mitt Romney’s adviser on immigration issues, Kris Kobach, made what he thought was a valid argument against an amendment that would have ended the GOP’s longstanding support of the Defense of Marriage Act:

    “Our government routinely judges sutuatons where you might regard people completely affecting themselves like for exmaple the use of controlled substances, like polygamy that is voluntarily entered in to. We condemn those activities even though they are not hurting other people at least directly. So this is worded way to broadly for inclusion in the platform.”

    ROFLMAO! I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

  9. stradella says:

    Mitt Romney is so stupid, he failed a survey. Snap!

  10. Estacada says:

    My guess is Dr. Jack Willke is what’s called a “silent adviser” in campaign shibboleth.

    Romney won’t come out and admit Willke is structuring the campaign’s position on Choice but you know he is very much involved.

  11. TOM339 says:

    I’ll tell you something and please don’t flame me but at the beginning of the 2012 campaign, I just never believed the GOP were mounting a “war on women.”

    After all, it’s 2012 and I thought people were smarter and more evolved but I was wrong. Based on the choice of Rep. Paul Ryan as veep and the growing evidence that Dr. Jack Willke is somehow involved in Romney’s policies, I have concluded the GOP hates women and are engaged in an all out war on them.

    This is completely shameful.

  12. Unconditional1 says:

    When the Romney/Ryan dynamic duo have their a$$es handed to them in Nov., perhaps the sheeple will begin to pay attention to the faaaaacts. Such ignorant, primitive and unevolved, mentalities from the dark ages, do not represent the majority of the mindsets of Americans today! Come on GOP, your killing us here!! My side hurts daily from the hilarious circus going on under the GOP’s “smalltop!”

  13. Rachel says:

    TOM339 – I would never flame you. I agree, it seems unbelievable the Republican party would decide to target women in 2012 the same way they targeted gays and lesbians in 2000 and 2004.

  14. ChiTOM says:

    It’s important to remember in Mormons believe:

    ✺ Having and raising children is the only thing women are designed to do. To nuture is to also be a “homemaker” according to Julie Beck (Relief Society President).

    ✺ The Church frowns upon women having careers and will only condone a woman doing something outside the home for emergencies.

    ✺ The Church does not legislate on the use of birth control; however, the official Church Handbook doesn’t approve of vasectomies or artificial insemination. The Church considers abortion (except in situations of rape, incest, or health of the mother) to be a grievous sin.

    ✺ Holding a job or having a career outside of the home is generally frowned on. Exceptions are made if the husband dies or divorces the wife.

    Long story short, women are incubators to grow and hatch babies.

  15. Randy Arroyo says:

    What is disturbing to me to learn the concept of “legitimate rape” was hatched from the brain of a doctor. A bona fide, medical physician. I hope someone write a complaint to the American Medical Association about this fraud. I know Dr. Jack Willke is 87-years of age but he shouldn’t get a “pass” just because he has one foot in the grave.

    Where do they find these kooks? The Republican Party–always amusing.
