Pennsylvania Rep. Who Harassed Pro-Life Activists Apologizes to Planned Parenthood Supporters for Creating ‘Distraction’

The Pennsylvania Democratic representative who harassed pro-lifers outside an abortion clinic and sparked a backlash within the pro-life community is apologizing to Planned Parenthood supporters.

“I’m sorry to have created this distraction,” State Rep. Brian Sims writes in a Planned Parenthood fundraising email.

The email was first reported by Salena Zito, a reporter for the New York Post and a CNN columnist.

Sims posted a video in early May showing him harassing and chasing a pro-life woman up and down a sidewalk in front of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood. He claimed she had no “moral right” to be there. He also called her an “old white lady” four times. Earlier, he had posted a video showing him berating pro-life teenage girls in front of the same clinic. In both videos, he asked the audience to help him find the names and addresses of the pro-life protesters.

The videos ignited a backlash and led to a pro-life rally in front of the same clinic attended by some 1,000 people, Christian Headlines previously reported.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider.
