(CNN) - The Tennessee Democratic Party has released divorce transcripts of a Republican Congressman detailing how he and his wife agreed on her getting two abortions.

Anti-abortion GOP Congressman Scott DesJarlais won re-election on November 6th by a comfortable margin.

Court documents from 2001 also revealed he admitted to having sexual affairs with some patients and colleagues when he was practicing medicine.

The transcripts also showed he prescribed pain medication to one of those patients.
DesJarlais has a history of votes on Capitol Hill that would restrict a woman's right to choose an abortion.

ln the testimony, DesJarlais said his wife's first abortion came because she was taking a drug that could have caused pregnancy complications.

He attributed the second abortion to them having marital problems.

Tennessee Democrats had hoped to release the divorce transcripts before Election Day.

Voters first elected him in 2010 with the help of Tea Party support.

DesJarlais has not commented on the release of the transcripts.
