GOP Lawmaker Regrets Past Statements About Rape

Maine State Rep. Lawrence Lockman (R) told the Portland Press Herald that he apologizes for past statements he made about rape.

Wrote Lockman in 1995: "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."
