State Representative Bully's Praying "Old White Woman" at PP

Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims, a Democrat, has posted on social media an 8-minute video of himself bullying what he calls "an old white woman" while she prays outside a Planned Parenthood clinic.

The video and his tirade are one of the most disgusting performances I've seen from the Left.

It's also a wake-up call to those who believe in religious freedom. And life.

Georgia's Governor kept his promise and signed legislation yesterday that bans abortions once a heartbeat can be detected. The Left is declaring Armageddon.

Change is coming.

Be informed.

Elected official publicly bullied Christian woman for her pro-life beliefs.

Rep. Brian Sims, a Democrat Pennsylvania state representative, posted an 8-minute video last Thursday showing him chasing and harassing a pro-life protester outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.

Calling her an "old white lady" and threatening to demonstrate outside her home, he continuously stuck his camera in her face, followed her around as she tried to avoid him, and taunted her.

He shouted at her, "How many children have you clothed today? I'm sorry, I missed your answer, how many children have you clothed today?"

As she tried to keep her back to the camera, Sims circled her to ensure viewers could see her face.

He continued shouting:
"How many children have you put shoes on today? Have you fed any children today or have you just stood out in front of a Planned Parenthood shaming people for doing what they have a constitutional right to do?"

Four different times he called her an "old white lady" as he stalked her up and down the sidewalk---she spoke only once when Sims bumped into her, asking him to please take the camera out of her face.

"Let's go protest in front of her house," he told the video viewers, telling them to find her address and share it publicly.

When she finally took out her cell phone, Sims shouted: "Please call the have no right being out here."

Sims later corrected that statement by saying she has a legal right to be "out here" but she has no "moral right" to be here.

He said,
"There's no faith that tells you that you're right and everybody else is wrong---Don't convince yourself that what you're doing isn't extremely racist---there is nothing Christian about what you're doing. There is nothing loving. There is nothing kind. This is a racist act of judgment."

He continued:
"Who would have thought that an old white lady would be out in front of Planned Parenthood telling people what's right for their bodies? Shame on you. Shame at you for hiding your face at the same time you are shaming other people...What you're doing here is disgusting."

What was she doing?

She is an elderly white woman who was quietly standing in front of Planned Parenthood's abortion clinic praying. Apparently, she is a Catholic. She was holding rosary beads while she was quietly praying.

The video has been seen by nearly a million people. The responses are varied, but what this man has done is shocking to most people's sensitivities---even if they are neither pro-life or Christian---but not all of them believe Sims was out of line.

Since the push back, Sims has remained unapologetic, writing on Twitter,
"Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values."

Who is this man?

He is an elected Pennsylvania State Representative. He self describes himself as an "LGBTQ activist, State Representative, and college football captain."

More importantly, his attitude reflects the attitudes of a segment of our culture who sadly feel exactly as he does---although they are often more discrete about how they "make progress" by dispensing of pro-life Christians.

Georgia governor under attack since signing legislation that bans abortions once a heartbeat can be detected.

Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp kept his election promise, signing "heartbeat" legislation yesterday.

The Left has exploded. The signing capped weeks of tension and protests at the state Capitol in Atlanta and marks the beginning of what will likely be a lengthy and costly legal battle over the law's constitutionality.

Associated Press says:
"Anti-abortion activists and lawmakers across the country, energized by the new conservative majority on the US Supreme Court that includes President Trump appointees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, are pushing abortion bans in an attack on the high court's 1973 Roe v Wade ruling which legalized abortion nationwide until a fetus is developed enough to live outside the womb."

The ACLU and the rest of the well-known pro-abortion crew are in full attack mode. Planned Parenthood, of course, is leading the attack on the governor.

A different approach than that of State Rep, Sims toward the "old white woman," but the same spirit.

In the first few months of 2019, "heartbeat" legislation has been signed into law in 4 states: Mississippi, Kentucky, Ohio and now Georgia. Lawmakers in a number of other states including Tennessee, Missouri, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, and West Virginia are considering similar proposals.

A bill recently passed in the Alabama House will ban all abortions at any stage of pregnancy, with a few narrow exceptions.

Kentucky's law was immediately challenged by the ACLU after it was signed in March, and a federal judge has temporarily blocked it.

I don't know for certain what was in the heart and prayers of the "old white woman," but I'm pretty sure it was the same prayer millions of us pro-life Christians---of all ethnicity and color, are praying.

We are asking God, the Creator of life itself, to forgive us for ever allowing this to happen in the first place---and to give us His favor and blessing as we move ever closer to when "abortion" and Roe v Wade will be revisited by the highest court in the land, and abortion will not be legal.

It is this that strikes fear and anger and terror in the hearts of the secularists who are obsessed with protecting the barbarian practice of killing unwanted babies.

Many legal scholars, on both sides of the issue, have said since Roe v Wade became law, that it was poorly conceived and poorly written, and could likely be overturned because of those flaws.

With the Trump appointees on the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade is beginning to look like reality in our time.

This is a time when we must stand strong for life.

"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart" (Galatians 6:9).

Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Proactive. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
