Democratic Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims filmed himself hassling and wanting to dox several teens who were praying outside an abortion clinic in April before repeating this behavior in early May.
Sims filmed himself in front of a southeastern Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood in a live Facebook video posted three weeks ago. The Pennsylvania state representative approached three reportedly teenaged girls and filmed them as he encouraged viewers to dox them.
“What weve got here is a bunch of … pseudo-Christian protesters whove been out here shaming young girls for being here,” Sims said in the video, according to Life News. “So, heres the deal, Ive got $100 to anybody who will identify these three, and I will donate to Planned Parenthood.”
After the teenagers and woman walked away from him, Sims focused on a man praying on the sidewalk.
“What makes you think its your job to tell women what to do with their bodies?” Sim asks the man, as shown in the video. “The truth is Im not really asking because I dont care. Shame on you!”
Sims also spoke at a woman praying outside the abortion clinic earlier this weekend as well, repeatedly following and filming her. (RELATED: Old White Lady — Pennsylvania State Rep Harasses Elderly Abortion Protester)
“Todays protester, now she is an old white lady who is going to try to avoid showing you her face,” Sims said in another video. “But the same laws, luckily, that protect her from being out here also protect me from showing you who she is. And so my hope is that youll donate $100 for every extra hour that this woman is out here telling people what is right for their bodies.”
“How many children have you clothed today?” Sims shouted at the woman. “How about many children have you put shoes on their feet today? Have you fed any children today or have you just stood out in front of a Planned Parenthood shaming people for something they have a Constitutional right to do.”
“Whod have thought that an old lady would be outside a Planned Parenthood telling people what is right for their bodies,” Sims says in the video. “What you are doing here is disgusting. This is wrong. You have no business being out here.”

Sims videos met backlash from pro-lifers and conservatives, drawing condemnation from the Pennsylvania Republican Party.
“State Rep. Brian Sims harassment of a womans peaceful and religious exercise of her First Amendment rights is yet another example of a troubling trend of growing extremism and hypocrisy among Democrats,” said Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio in a statement. “People are entitled to exercise their First Amendment rights and should be free from intimidation and harassment, even when their views makes left-wing Democrats like Rep. Sims uncomfortable.”
“We need elected officials who work to solve the problems of Pennsylvania families – not those who like Rep. Brian Sims, Rep. Danielle Friel Otten, and others continue to use identity politics to divide,” DiGiorgio added.
“Having met Rep. Sims, I am surprised at this episode of despicable conduct. Given the nature of his conduct, he owes an apologRead More – Source
