Lawrence Lockman: “If Women Can Get Abortions, Men Should Be Legally Allowed to Rape Them”

AUGUSTA, Maine – In a press statement by Republican State Representative Lawrence Lockman of Maine he states “If a woman has (the right to an abortion), why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t (in most cases) result in anyone’s death.”

The controversial statement is one of many unearthed by activist Mike Tipping of Maine People’s Alliance. Other surprising, public comments made by Lockman either in press statements or in local newspapers include:

Blaming liberals for worsening the AIDS epidemic by telling “the public that the practice of sodomy is a legitimate alternative lifestyle, rather than a perverted and depraved crime against humanity.”

Speaking out against letting HIV-infected students attend school. “It’s peculiar that the government is telling healthcare workers that surfaces contaminated with bodily fluids should be thoroughly disinfected, but at the same time they are telling us that toilet seats have some magical property that they are able to resist viruses.”

Equating gay sexual activity with mental illness. “Clearly the practice of sodomy is learned behavior, and those addicted to this form of biologically-insane sex are at high risk for all manner of serious medical problems.”

Warning people of the government’s plan to force gays into the workplace. “You can bet the rent money they will demand that employers set up goals and timetables to achieve 10 percent homosexual representation in the workforce and in government contracts.”

Though he refused to comment on any of his comments, Lockman released a statement attempting to put his past behind him.  “I have always been passionate about my beliefs, and years ago I said things that I regret,” read the statement. “I hold no animosity toward anyone by virtue of their gender or sexual orientation, and today I am focused on ensuring freedom and economic prosperity for all Mainers.”
