Pro-life activist Abby Johnson said Tuesday Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Brian Sims' video message in which he attempts to justify his aggressive berating of a pro-life woman outside of a Planned Parenthood facility "isn't cutting it."

The former Planned Parenthood director who founded a ministry to help other abortion workers leave the industry is calling on all pro-life activists to join at abortion clinics throughout the country Friday to show abortion supporters like Sims "we won't be bullied," and "we will continue to stand against the abortion clinics who bully children til death."

Sims tweeted a video message Tuesday in which he said he works as a volunteer patient escort at Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania, where he harassed a woman he referred to as an "old white lady" who was praying the rosary outside. He said his behavior toward the woman and his bullying of pro-life teens two weeks earlier — both of which he videotaped and posted to Twitter — were influenced by what he claims are "the insults, the slurs, the attacks, and the racism that those protesters aim mostly at young girls going for clinical care."

In justifying his actions, Sims said in his message, "What I should have shown you was protesters gathered together to pray at, not to silently pray for, people coming in and out of Planned Parenthood, as they intercepted them and harassed them."
