Democratic Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims, who went viral for recording himself accosting pro-lifers praying outside a Planned Parenthood clinic, sparked backlash after posting a video addressing the controversy in which he again attacked pro-lifers.

Sims revealed in a video he posted Tuesday to Twitter that he has “spent the last seven years serving as a volunteer patient escort” at the clinic, and claimed he’s “seen first hand the insults, the slurs the attacks and the racism those protesters direct at mostly young girls going there for clinic care.”

Sims provided no evidence of the alleged racism and harassment from pro-life demonstrators.

The state representative first went viral for posting a video of himself accosting an elderly woman praying outside the clinic. Additional video showed Sims had previously offered a $100 reward to anyone who could identify three teen girls Sims accosted while they prayed outside.

Sims didn’t apologize to the pro-lifers he accosted in the video he posted on Tuesday. Instead, he expressed regret for his tactics.

“What I should have shown you in that video was protesters gathered together to pray at, not to silently pray for, people coming out of Planned Parenthood as they intercepted them and harassed them,” Sims said, acknowledging Planned Parenthood’s “non-engagement policy.”

His non-apology video was widely panned online.

“Democrats in Harrisburg are very unhappy,” observed New York Post columnist Salena Zito, noting “not apologizing does not help.”

“The words you are looking for are ‘I’m sorry,’” Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen told Sims. “And you should deliver that apology directly to the elderly woman and teen girls you verbally assaulted.”
