WATCH: Democrat State Rep. Who Harassed Pro-Life Women And Girls Posts ‘Apology’ Video — Sort Of

On Tuesday afternoon, Democrat State Representative Brian Sims posted a video on social media addressing his actions over the weekend, which included harassment of an elderly pro-life woman and attempting to dox three teenage girls for praying outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in his district. After Sims maligns pro-life protesters and sidewalk counselors as “racist” bigots in what is apparently an apology video, he vows to “do better.” Though the Democrat is profusely apologetic to Planned Parenthood, there are notably no apologies offered to the women and girls he harassed over the weekend.

“I will fiercely protect a woman’s right to make the best choices for her health & her body, unimpeded. I also know that two wrongs don’t make a right, especially on the front lines of a civil rights battle. I can do better, and I will do better, for the women of Pennsylvania,” Sims captioned the video.

“As a Planned Parenthood volunteer and as a supporter, I fully understand, respect, and appreciate the non-engagement policy that they have,” the elected official says, as transcribed by Hotair. “And I would never want to do anything that interfered with the care that they are providing to their patients. As an activist and an advocate I know why pushing back against harassment and discrimination are a must even when they’re uncomfortable but last week I wasn’t a patient escort. I was a neighbor and a concerned citizen and I was aggressive.”

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

Sims made waves on Saturday when he live-streamed himself harassing an elderly pro-life sidewalk counselor for over seven minutes. “Shame on you! Shame on you!” the Democrat screams at the woman, who is remaining silent as she’s being taped. “What you’re doing out here is disgusting. You have no business being out here! … An old white lady telling people what’s right to do with their bodies. Shame on you. Shame! Shame!”

Video later emerged of Sims threatening to dox three teenage girls who were praying outside the abortion clinic. “What we’ve got here is a bunch of protesters, a bunch of pseudo-Christian protesters who’ve been out here shaming young girls for being here,” yells Sims. “So here’s the deal, I’ve got a $100 for anyone who will identify any of these three.”

Responding to reports on his behavior Sims wrote: “Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values. #BeReal.”

The Democrat’s non-apology comes in the wake of prominent pro-lifers banding together for a rally scheduled on Friday in the same space Sims harassed peaceful pro-life women and girls.
