Demanding an investigation, Pennsylvania Republicans have sent a letter to city, state and federal prosecutors claiming the woman praying outside the clinic at 12th and Locust streets was harassed and intimidated by Sims.
In the nearly nine-minute video, Sims follows the woman, who is holding a rosary, as she walks back and forth in front of the building on May 2.
"Shame on you," he says to the woman throughout the video. "There's not a person coming here that needs an old, white lady telling them what to do with their bodies."
A spokesman for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said they are looking into the video, and police are monitoring potentially harmful comments posted on social media.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania had no comment, and a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General said they are leaving it in the hands of the district attorney.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia also responded to Sims' video in a statement, which read, in part:
A "prayerful rally" has been organized outside the Planned Parenthood on Friday at 11 a.m.
