Letter: Falmouth candidate has 'extreme' views

Falmouth citizens should be aware of Town Council candidate Bryan Dench’s history of anti-gay and anti-abortion rights activism.

Dench has served as the treasurer for the Maine State Right of Life Political Action Committee, and is the co-author of an anti-abortion screed entitled “Fetal Holocaust,” which argues that abortion should be illegal even in cases of rape or incest.

A vocal opponent of marriage equality, Dench published a letter in The Portland Press Herald defending what he called the "common-sense objection" that “homosexual relations cannot be considered natural or normal.”

Not surprisingly, Dench isn’t talking about his extreme views in his campaign ads.
