Special Note From the Organizers: We stand against bullying and are calling for Rep. Sims to do the right thing and step down from public office and stop bullying pro-lifers. Rep. Sims’ actions disqualify him from public office but they do not devalue him as a human being. We do not condone any personal attacks against Rep. Sims. We are here to stand up for preborn children and to show the love and strength of the pro-life community. Every person is worthy of love and respect, regardless of their personal beliefs, and we hope that Rep. Sims can come to see our side of this issue.
