    Is he the genius behind the science of "vaginal upsuck?"

      Both his bare-bones Wikipedia entry and the sidebar of this Cincinnati Enquirer article claim that he's an M.D.

        “Their (Dr. and Mrs. Willke) rhetoric fueled the violent way of the movement. They introduced what I call the "baby doll-and-ketchup' photos in the early 1970s, and without them (the photos), there would be no extremists of the extremists.”

        articles (actually, the ones I can see are all labeled opinions) that show up in Pub Med, including this heavily politically slanted one bashing Mifepristone in The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, 2001. http://www.theannals.com/...  

        That one is entitled, "Mifepristone -- a boom or a bust?" (Guess what he concludes), and is his most recent publication.  The others are listed here:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/...  Not one of them has an abstract (like I said, they're mainly opinions, very little research, and absolutely none of it unbiased.)  They are entitled, "Pro-life people oppose violence," "Very few illegal abortion deaths," (that was published in 1992, and as there is no abstract, and as I'd have to order the print version, I cannot tell you what his methods or conclusions were or were based on, or where he was getting his data), and finally, "Tactics of the United States right-to-life movement."  That was published in the Lancet in 1985.

        "On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps...of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again."

      Willke is a proponent of the concept that rape victims rarely get pregnant, stating in a 1999 article that "There's no greater emotional trauma that can be experienced by a woman than an assault rape. This can radically upset her possibility of ovulation, fertilization, implantation and even nurturing of a pregnancy" and that by his calculations assault rape pregnancy is extremely rare and about four cases per state per year[
