In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, Newt Gingrich lowered the boom on Mitt Romney by declaring that his Romneycare Healthcare plan in Massachusetts allows for, “tax paid abortions.”
Gingrich also told me Romney, “Put Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, by name, in Romneycare. So, when you say Romneycare, you’re also saying Planned Parenthood.”
The Brody File went aboard Gingrich’s bus in Manchester, N.H., Sunday afternoon. Watch the video below along with the full transcription.

David Brody: I want to ask you about the Planned Parenthood situation, with Romneycare. You’ve brought it up before. I would take it in South Carolina this is going to be a pretty big deal down there.
Newt Gingrich: Yeah, I think two of the real sleeper issues that did not play up here all that much because we were, frankly, so focused on Iowa. One is that despite having said he is pro-life, Romneycare has tax-paid abortions. He appointed pro-abortion judges, and he put Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, byname, in Romneycare. So, when you say Romneycare, you’re also saying Planned Parenthood.
And, the state government actually gave low cost loans to build an abortion clinic, after he said he was pro-life. So, that’s going to be for virtually every right-to-life activist in South Carolina, Romney I think will be totally unacceptable.
The other thing is, he quadrupled the tax on owning a gun. Today, you have to register a gun in Massachusetts, and you have to pay $100 a year per gun. And I think when you go to South Carolina, you’re going to find a lot of people who think, and Romney defended Massachusetts’ gun laws, and I think you’re going to find a lot of people who find that very unacceptable because it’s a tax on their Second Amendment rights.
