Anti-abortion Congressman Tim Murphy (R-PA) will resign from Congress . The Congressman is currently engulfed in scandal following reports that he asked his mistress to have an abortion during a pregnancy scare according to CBS News.

Murphy, who is anti-abortion, appeared to urge a woman with whom he was having an affair to have an abortion, according to a Tuesday report in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The paper obtained documents featuring apparent text messages between the mistress, Shannon Edwards, a forensic psychologist, and Murphy."And you have 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," Edwards wrote in a text to the congressman in January, according to the report. Murphy then replied: "I get what you say about my March for life messages. I've never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don't write any more. I will."
