Anti-abortion congressman Tim Murphy reportedly asked his mistress who was half his age to get an abortion when he thought she might be pregnant.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said Tuesday it obtained text messages between Republican U.S. Rep Murphy, 64, of Pennsylvania and Shannon Edwards, 32, a forensic psychologist.
It berated him for a pro-life post shared to his Facebook account.
The text message from January 25 from Edwards said the congressman had ‘zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options,’ according to the paper.
Murphy who is still married to his wife Nanette Missig, admitted to having a liaison with 32-year-old Shannon Edwards which began in February 2016. Edwards is married to physician, Jesse Sally.
Dr. Shannon Edwards [Murphy’s mistress), maintains that she did not begin to have an intimate relationship with conservative congressman until her marriage had fallen apart: ‘We had a collegial and friend relationship before anything else,’ Edwards testified in divorce court. She didn’t take kindly to the suggestion from Murphy to get an abortion

Tim Murphy consequently, the Republican Congressman Tim Murphy though not party in domestic dispute was sought to give a deposition in the divorce proceedings concerning Shannon Edwards, with whom he later admitted to having an affair and her husband Jesse Sally, a sports medicine physician.
The lawyer representing Dr. Sally, Dorothy Wolbert, said the deposition was relevant because Shannon Edwards is seeking alimony from her soon to ex-husband.

Murphy’s pro-life Facebook post pushed Shannon Edwards to call him out
Murphy publicly posted on Facebook about how he supports the bill to protect human life
A text message from Murphy’s number in response said the staff was responsible for his anti-abortion messages: ‘I’ve never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don’t write any more.’
Edwards, it turned out, wasn’t pregnant. Murphy’s spokeswoman had no comment on the report.
Murphy is married to wife Nanette and has an adult daughter, Bevin.
The revelation came as the House on Tuesday approved Republican legislation that would make it a crime to perform an abortion after 20 weeks of fetal development.
Murphy, a member of the House Pro-Life Caucus, is among its co-sponsors. He avoided the media in Washington after voting for the legislation, and efforts by reporters to talk to him were unsuccessful.
NARAL Pro-Choice America quickly criticized ‘the height of hypocrisy’ displayed by Murphy’s support for the legislation.
‘You shouldn’t have to be a member of Congress just to access your right to abortion,’ said Sasha Bruce, a vice president for the pro-abortion rights group.
In the past the US congressman has been applauded by the Family Research Council for his views on abortion.
The H.R. 7 bill was passed by congress in January, which states the use of federal funds to pay for abortions will be permanently prohibited.
The law also states that federal medical facilities and health professionals aren’t allowed to provide abortion services.
‘I proudly sponsored and voted for this important bill to clearly stand for the dignity and value of all human life, both the born and the unborn,’ said Murphy.
‘Passage of H.R. 7 in the wake of the President’s executive action gives me great hope we will once again be a nation committed to honoring life and ensuring American taxpayer dollars are never spent to end a life before it even begins.’
Back on January 25, a message from Murphy’s mistress, Dr. Edwards, asked how the congressman had ‘zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options’
A message from January 25 from Shannon Edwards (his mistress) said the congressman had ‘zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options,’ according to the The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Murphy recently acknowledged his affair with Edwards, which became public as a result of her divorce proceedings.
In a press statement he said: ‘Last year I became involved in an affair with a personal friend. This is nobody’s fault but my own, and I offer no excuses. To the extent that there should be any blame in this matter, it falls solely upon me.
‘I ask the media to respect the privacy of my family. They have done nothing wrong and deserve to be left alone,’ the statement added.
The Pennsylvania politician has served eight-terms in congress, is married and has an adult daughter. Edwards, 32, is a practicing psychologist and performs evaluations of defendants for the Allegheny County court system.

Edwards maintains that she did not begin to have an intimate relationship with Murphy until her marriage had fallen apart.
‘We had a collegial and friend relationship before anything else,’ Edwards told the court.
Dr. Sally, Dorothy Wolbert, who married Edwards on July 28, 2012, however, claims that his marriage was destroyed by the affair, and filings showed that he knew Edwards was having an affair with ‘a well-known political figure in the community.’
Sally said he believed the affair began in February 2016.
Murphy said that his relationship with Edwards ended last year.
