    'View' Co-Host Admits To Several Abortions

    Sherri Shepherd, a co-host on ABC's "The View," said in a new interview with a Christian magazine that she's had "more abortions than" she "would like to count."

    Shepherd's also told Precious Times magazine stories of abusive relationships and drug abuse, which occurred more than a decade ago.

    "In 1993, my mother was dying from diabetic complications. My sister was heavy into drugs, and we would have to go and get her from crack houses," Shepherd told Precious Times. "I was in a very physically abusive relationship. I was sleeping with a lot of guys and had more abortions than I would like to count."

    Shepherd, 41, told the magazine that she had low self-esteem and "just wanted to die."

    "I felt if someone killed me, it wouldn’t even make a difference," said Shepherd, now a mother of a 2-year-old boy. "But God showed me that it would make a difference."

    Shepherd also suggested in the interview that one of her spiritual advisors could "save" her head "View" talker Barbara Walters.

    “Oh sometimes I say, 'Lord, Juanita Bynum or Joyce Myers would be so good at this table.' They could lay hands on Barbara Walters and get her saved," Shepherd told the magazine.
