*Gingrich tells 21 bald-faced lies to Brinkley on ABC*

On Sunday's "Brinkley", Gingrich said he "supported the 
availability" of federally financed abortions for women who are

Gingrich has voted to *DENY* women access to abortions in cases 
of rape and incest on *21* separate occasions. On *17* of those 
occasions, Gingrich voted to deny women access to abortions even 
if their *LIVES* were at risk.
