Brian Sims, a Pennsylvania state legislator who confronted a woman praying outside Planned Parenthood last week, said in a video posted to social media Tuesday that he was aggressive, and he reiterated his intention of "pushing back" against those who pray or protest outside abortion clinics.
Sims had livestreamed a video May 2 in which he can be seen approaching a woman outside of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. The woman, by herself, can be seen praying the rosary across the street from the Planned Parenthood.
He aggressively questioned her for several minutes, and addressing livestream viewers he solicited the woman's name and address, saying, "we'll protest outside of her home. Let's go protest out in front of her house and tell her what's right for her body."
The lawmaker posted a video May 7 discussing the prior week's video.
