Democratic Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Sims Says He Regrets Harassing Pro-Life Protesters Outside Abortion Clinic

A Pennsylvania legislator expressed regret for his mistreatment of an elderly pro-life activist and two pro-life girls who were peacefully demonstrating outside an abortion clinic.

Democratic Representative Brian Sims posted a video to his Twitter account on Tuesday responding to the outrage over his behavior.

Rep. Sims began the video speaking well of the Planned Parenthood clinic where the incident took place and criticized the pro-life protesters who regularly demonstrate outside of the clinic, claiming they engage in “slurs,” “attacks,” and even “racism.”

“I know that two wrongs don’t make a right. I can do better, and I will do better, for the women of Pennsylvania,” stated Sims, whose video statement got over 1.7 million views by Thursday afternoon.

Last week, Sims garnered controversy for his posting to social media a video of himself harassing an elderly woman who was praying outside of a Planned Parenthood facility in Philadelphia.

“They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please,” he tweeted on May 2.

In April, Sims also confronted and filmed a woman and her two teenage daughters praying outside of the clinic, offering $100 to anyone who could identify them.
