    So Todd Akin, the Republican candidate for Missouri Senate, has been arrested at least 8 times during the 1980's for protesting at abortion clinics. It has been known for months that he was arrested 4 times. But, just recently the Huffington Post got wind of information that showed he was actually arrested a total of 8 times, at least.

    Todd Akin's bad rap got started early in his campaign a few months back, when he was asked in a TV interview in late August about the odds of a woman becoming pregnant from rape. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down," he said.

    What??!!? That's beyond ridiculous. I seriously hope no one believes that. And, I find it hard to really believe that even Akin truly believes that. But, I guess he really is that ignorant. Sad. His arrests are just further proof on the lengths that he will go to champion his extreme abortion views.

    Very interesting article. Would you have any more details, please? What was he arrested for? I do not think anyone can be arrested simply for expressing their distaste for abortion, or for abortion doctors. He would have had to do something pretty radical: )
