Pennsylvania Republicans cut a lawmaker's mic after he notes the state GOP is '100% white'

A Pennsylvania Democrat had his speech cut short on Wednesday after he noted the state's Republican lawmakers are "100% white."

The heated moment came during a debate over a Republican proposal to regulate the disposal of fetal remains, one that Democratic lawmakers argued would force women to bury or cremate a miscarried fetus. As USA Today reported, a number of Democratic women spoke against the measure - which Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has promised to veto - by highlighting their own traumatic experiences with miscarriages.

Rep. Brian Sims, a Democrat from Philadelphia, lamented the fact his colleagues were forced to share such testimony in the state's Republican-controlled House.

"This is just another act in a political theater that has plagued this chamber for far too long," Sims said. "We are a legislature that has met more to remove mask mandates, strip executive emergency powers, and overturn free and fair elections than we have to make strategic investments in Pennsylvania's women, children, and families."
