Pro-Life Activist Abby Johnson Invites Brian Sims To Clinic To Face Pro-Lifers

Pro-life organization founder and longtime former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, invited Democratic Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims to meet her Friday morning at the abortion clinic where he verbally assaulted pro-lifers.

Sims came under fire after he filmed himself, on multiple occasions, harassing pro-life supporters praying outside a Planned Parenthood on Locust Street in Philadelphia. The state representative first entered the limelight after he posted a video on May 2 showing him confronting and mocking an old woman praying outside of the abortion clinic in Philadelphia.

After pro-life group Live Action tweeted about the exchange, Sims tweeted, “Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values.”

Video shot several weeks earlier surfaced next showing Sims offering $100 for someone to dox three young girls who were praying outside the clinic.

Following the incidents, Johnson invited Sims to have a conversation outside the clinic. “Whatever he wants to talk about, I invite him to come on Friday morning,” Johnson said, according to a Tuesday press release. She also extended an invitation on Facebook.

 

Johnson worked as the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas for eight years before leaving the organization in 2009. She is the founder of pro-life group And Then There Were None (ATTWN), which helps abortion workers leave their jobs and find careers outside of the abortion industry.

Johnson has helped roughly 500 former abortion workers leave their jobs. The group also provides support to women who’ve had abortions and are suffering.

“Brian Sims is a bully, deliberating picking on people who cannot stand up to him, seeking identifying information on underage girls for who knows what reasons, and calling people horrible and offensive names online for everyone to see,” Johnson said, according to the press release.

Johnson also called out pro-choice groups for remaining silent after Sims’ verbal assault. “No women’s rights organizations have condemned his hate speech or bullying of an elderly woman,” she said.

The Pennsylvania State Ethics Commission opened an investigation in June 2017 into the state representative after questions arose regarding travel reimbursements and speaking fees Sims received while serving in office, the Catholic News Agency reported Tuesday.

“This is the cost of politics in a city like Philadelphia … This was done to hit me where I’m strongest – and I think I’m strongest in my ethics,” Sims said in June 2017 addressing the investigation, The Philadelphia Weekly reported.

Sims also ironically tweeted Monday about protecting victims of hate crimes.
