MK Anastassia Michaeli (Yisrael Beiteinu) continued her onslaught on homosexuals in an interview for the Israeli daily Maariv that will be published on Thursday.

"Young girls become pregnant and have abortions that hurt their chances to get pregnant in the future, and in the end they become lesbians," Michaeli said in an interview.

"Relationships between a man and a woman should be the norm in the State of Israel. And if some men feel it is the norm to live with a man, to participate in gay pride parades walking down the streets in underwear and even without – this is a breach of morality," Michaeli is quoted as saying. "This is an attack on children's rights, an attack on family rights, and an attack on women's rights. It is violent and vulgar content. It is ignorant and a completely unacceptable perversion."

Last week Michaeli angered gay groups and MKs alike by saying "most gay people commit suicide at 40." She accused Israel's Channel 10 of presenting homosexuality falsely. "When I turn on the channel, I see so-called entertainment shows on how nice it is to be gay. They suffer sexual harassment at a very young age, and it deteriorates from there."

In her interview with Sherry Makover-Balikov for Maariv's weekend section, Michaeli said she would not apologize. "There are people that will not accept that there are thinking women. If a man would say the same things instead of me, there wouldn't have been such a wide and robust response to it. I expressed my opinion and it should be respected. A sexual preference forms because we don't have enough advertising for normative family values and proper sexual education."
