Pennsylvania Lawmaker Brian Sims Confronts Anti-Abortion Protesters

Pennsylvania Lawmaker Brian Sims Confronts Anti-Abortion Protesters May 9, 2019

Hero: Pennsylvania lawmaker Brian Sims is under attack by conservative Christians after confronting anti-abortion protesters outside a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood.

State Rep. Sims recently confronted anti-abortion protesters outside a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood clinic and broadcast his interactions via social media:

In the video, Sims confronts an older woman protesting. The following is a partial transcript:

Shame on you for hiding your face at the same time that you’re shaming other people … What you’re doing here is disgusting. This is wrong … Shame on you, ma’am, for standing out here thinking you know what’s right for other people’s bodies … An old white lady telling people what to do with their bodies? Shame on you … This is disgusting. This is shameful … If you’re a white person like I am, we have a lot of catching up to do, we have a lot to apologize for, and I’m going to start by apologizing for this woman. Shame on you. What you’re doing here is disgusting … Don’t convince yourself that what you’re doing isn’t extremely racist. How dare you. This is grotesque …

How many Catholic churches are you protesting after 400 priests in Pennsylvania [were] indicted for child molestation… The amount of mental gymnastics it must take to think that you have a right to tell a woman what’s right for her body and yet you will support a faith that has molested children across the planet? Shame on you.

When confronted by anti-abortion conservatives on Twitter, Sims replied:

Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values.

The video recordings went viral on Twitter, with many angry conservatives taking shots at the Democratic lawmaker:

In a more recent video Sims admitted that he had been “aggressive,” noting:

I know that two wrongs don’t make a right and I can do better, and I will do better for the women of Pennsylvania.

Bottom line: Conservatives are angry after Pennsylvania lawmaker Brian Sims confronts anti-abortion protesters outside a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood.Pennsylvania Lawmaker Brian Sims Confronts Anti-Abortion Protesters (Image via Twitter)
