(CNSNews.com) -- After openly gay Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims (D-District 182) publicly filmed, harassed, and sought to “dox” a mother and three daughters who were praying outside a Planned Parenthood abortion facility, the father of the three girls launched a GoFundMe page to support the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia.

The gofundme.com page reads, “State Rep. Brian Sims tried to Harass and Dox my Daughters. He Offered $100. Let's Donate $100,000 to the Pro-Life Movement Instead.”

“On Holy Thursday (April 18, 2019) my wife, two teenage daughters, and their friend were peacefully praying outside of a Planned Parenthood in Center City Philadelphia when a man started yelling at them,” reads the fundraiser. “[A]fter ranting at them for several minutes, he left, and returned with his cell phone to record the above video.”



“It turns out that the man is an elected official,” states the page. “Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims. In his video, later posted on Twitter, Rep. Sims not only attempts to shame them for praying for the unborn babies facing abortion, but offers viewers $100 if they will identify the teen girls in the video.”

“It's bad enough that a grown man would be trying to dox three teenage girls,” reads the page. “It's even worse that he is an elected official. I've got two responses to these despicable actions by ‘Representative’ Sims:

“First, Brian, if you have a problem with my wife and daughters praying outside of an abortion clinic, you can come and see me.

“It seems like you like to pick on women, teenagers, and senior citizens (see him harass a senior citizen who was praying by clicking here ). That's shameful, and unacceptable.”

(Twitter.)


“Second, I have a challenge for the pro-life community,” reads the fundraising page. “Rep. Sims offered $100 to anyone who would identify these teenage girls for him. Instead of $100, let's join together to donate $100,000 to the pro-life movement.”

So far, in a little over 11 hours, the fundraiser has generated more than $5,500.

During the video made by Sims, he says to the mother and the teenage girls, "Hi everyone! Representative Brian Sims here. And I am outside the Planned Parenthood in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Oh no, they're leaving now. What we've got here is a bunch of protesters. Bunch of pseudo-Christian protesters who have been out here shaming young girls for being here. And so here's the deal. I've got a $100 to anyone who will identify any of these three [teen girls].”

(Twitter.)

The mother then interjects, "Hi -- we're actually just praying for babies, and we believe women deserve more."

Talking over the mother, Sims says, "But I'm going to donate to Planned Parenthood. So look, a bunch of white people standing out in front of a Planned Parenthood shaming people.”

“There's nothing Christian about what you're doing,” says Sims. “Nothing Christian at all about what you're doing. Nothing Christian, or loving, or godly about what you're doing. So I've got $100 to anybody who will identify who this [is]."

Sims then points his phone at a young man who is standing on the sidewalk and says, "See if you've got some friends out here, a $100, it would be easy if you gave me your name an address."

The man responded with his name and address. Sims shot back without giving him the $100: "What makes you think that it's your job to tell women what's right for their bodies? And the truth is I'm not really asking 'cause I don't care. Shame on you."

Sims apparently did not pay the young man the $100 as promised.

Sims then walked away from the man and towards the clinic. "Guys, Planned Parenthood out here faces attacks daily from people like this, from pseudo-Christians saying that they are here to somehow protect their own version of Christianity,” he states. “Do me a favor, if you've watched this, please consider giving $100 to Planned Parenthood, I'm going to do the same."
