Sherri's Startling Confession: "I had more abortions than I would like to count"

| Filed under: TV News

shshep.jpg

The View co-host Sherri Shepherd recently made some startling revelations to Precious Times, a magazine for today's black Christian woman.

On life before Christianity:

"Before I converted to Christianity, I was a Jehovah's Witness. 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. 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. I had very low self-esteem and just wanted to die. I felt if someone killed me, it wouldn't even make a difference. But God showed me that it would make a difference."

She also tells the mag that that it is hard being 'taken to task about her faith' on The View:

"Oh sometimes I say, 'Lord, Juanita Bynum or Joyce Myers (evangelists) would be so good at this table. They could lay hands on Barbara Walters and get her saved. I ask the Lord, 'Why am I here?' I have to trust God when He says, 'Because I said so.'"

Wow.

That's some eye opening stuff!

We wonder if the ladies of The View will talk about this on the show????

    Abortion is a hard subject to talk about, especially with all the religious nuts out there! I'm happy she was able to say something honest, most people have to keep those parts of their lives hidden.

    What was startling to me is she considers Jehovah's Witnesses NOT Christian. While many believe it to be a "cult", it is a recognized Christian sect. You can go do a different denomination (like Catholic to Baptist), but you were always "Christian" (Believe in the divinity of Christ).

    It's official, she's is nuts. She was a bad choice to replace Star Jones

    This is a wonderful example of the way that Jesus can redeem a life. Also, since He has called Sherri to the platform of The View to spread the Word about Him, He will certainly give her the strength, knowledge and wisdom to know what to say.

    I used to think she was a crazy nut because all I ever saw was her stuff on here or on the HuffPo…then a friend got me watching the show and I like her in spite of some of her quirky ways. She is sweet and has a kind heart. I think it was brave of her to make these confessions and to show that there is a side of her that is real.

    It's nice that she is being so open & honost. I know that if I were in the public eye, I wouldn't reveal myself to that extent. I am a very religious person myself, and it is so hard for me to comprehend that people have abortions like that…as a form of birth control. How do you let yourself get pregnant that many times? I personally think that is so sad & tragic that we live in the kind of world where people are so selfish & careless, and have such little values.
    Yeah for Sherri that she turned her life around & wants to be a good example & to make a difference.

    24

    You know, I am SICK of these people giving Jehovah's Witnesses a bad name! I know SEVERAL Jehovah's Witnesses and I KNOW FOR A FACT that they do not condone abortion! Also, just because you attend the Kingdom Hall (their place of worship) every now and then does NOT make a person a witness! I would like to say for the record that Jehovah's Witnesses DO NOT have abortions! Sherri really needs to stop trying to stir up controversy. What I really respect about JW's is that they do not say one thing and do another. They do not involve themselves in politics (they never have!), they are honest, and have high morals. They do NOT celebrate any holidays as the origins of these celebrations are pagan (look this up in any encyclopaedia in your city or town!) and they are HONEST people! Sherri has some real issues with the church and I believe that IF she was really a JW, she was disfellowshipped from the church for her grossly immortal lifestyle. Also, murder is wrong…fetus or no, murder is STILL wrong, and definitely a disfellowshipping matter! MOST churches out there allow any and everything to go down on their watch. In other words, MOST religious leaders say one thing and do another. This has NEVER been the case with JW's! No, they are NOT perfect, but they do not tolerate hypocrisy in their ranks! Sherri, please shut up and get some class. Also, if you have a problem with this faith, keep it to yourself. After all, you made no one but YOU look bad!

    um.. I don't think Barbara needs to be "saved" What a cocky ass, condescending statement. Funny how it's only the unstable people with fucked up lives that suddenly find Jesus. No one with stable lives who are level headed do, FOR THE MOST PART. I hate that evangelical shit

The View is nothing but a bunch of old hags that bitch and complain about things….not the kind of energy I like to have.

    That's why I hate organized religion. You can do any cruel, evil thing you can think of and you have to do is say your sorry and it somehow wipes away all your sin. What BS! Take some personal responsibility. I guess we should let all the criminals in jail out that have converted to Christianity since God has forgiven them, how can we let the secular Courts and jail system supersede Gods will.

    I personally lead my with the credo treat others how you wish to be treated. I don't need religion to tell me the difference between right and wrong, I have something called common sense!

    Jehovah's Witnesses believe that abortion is murder and premarital sex is wrong. She should not call herself one and then live that kind of lifestyle. And Jehovah's Witnesses are Christians. I wouldn't be going around telling people that I slept with anything that had the right parts and killed more innocent little babies than I can count. Unreal.

    57

    Re: TRUTH – TRUTH…You cannot say in any unequivocal manner that there is any religion that follows each and every edict to the "tee" while you may know many Jehovah's Witness, there are many who have fallen short. Granted they may not believe in abortion, that doesn't mean that they don't have them. Putting preaching to practice is totally different when it's your life. I don't necessarily condone abortion, but the only thing I hate more than abortion is an abused, poorly cared for child. You will never know how many Jehovah's witness, Catholics, Jews, Etc… have abortions, vote, have pre-marital sex, etc…because we are all human. Part of evolution, is being able to learn the capacity to decide and forgive. Don't pretend to believe that you know every detail of any worshipers private life. You don't, just as I'm sure they don't know yours.

    Barbra Waters does not have to be saved .Sherie got that wrong. I find that w/ people, famous ones and just regular people , say that are saved and anyone who is not Protestant or "saved," is not. You know. Sherrie , it is good she redeemed her life 100 fold. That is way too much info to say publically . Old news. Too persoanl. You really do not have to express all to the public becaus e some cannothandle it or understand. It is just not necessary.
    BTW, I am Catholic and KNOW I am saved and everything else. Protestants have said that we Catholics are not . BS!! It is truely how lives his /he life that shows God the Father and other people if you are 'saved."

    Re: Anony

    I'm not saying there aren't those that haven't made mistakes, nobody is perfect. But abortion is considered murder and wrong, because life is to be considered sacred and premartial sex is also wrong. Like I said, it doesn't mean that there aren't those that have made mistakes. We all do.

    Pretty shocking revalation. I like Sherry. I do think though, that if you have abortions, it is totally hipocritical to be all religious and to be a bible thumper. Why is it that every female I've known who is avidly pro-life has had abortion(s)?! So, it's okay to be a killer yourself and to ask forgiveness and then you get a 'get out of hell free' card? That is sorta like Jesse Jackson using the N word after he publically rejects the usage of it.

    I do appreciate Sherri's honesty, and that she doesn't have temper tantrums when others don't agree with her (like Elizabitch).
    Unfortunately, some evangelicals really brainwashed Sherri. They love to seek out folks with low self-esteem.
    Evangelical ministers love to preach that Jehovah Witness, Mormans and Catholics are not Christians. They call them "false religions".

    Abortion is not a form of birth control. It can also affect sterility. I'm baffled when I read of this in this day and age. Birth control has been available since the sixties, and your elder sisters fought for it for you so you could avoid this. Use your brains and the benefits afforded you.

    "More abortions that I would like to count"

    Does anyone else smell a rat here?

    That sounds like a religious right nut making shit up. I'm sure she had one, maybe more– but abortions are not like drinks at a bar, when you can just keep having one after the other. They're expensive, for one. Either she's lying for the attention ("I have sinned more than anyone! So I'm the best saved person EVAH!"), or she's the most irresponsible and stupid person to ever have lived. The world is flat? More like her brainwave activity.

    Re: AgentGiggles. – They dont tolerate hipocrisy. Anybody practicing bad conduct is disfellowshipped if they choose to continue there lifestyle. They are always welcomed in the meetings but can not call themselves one of Jehovah's Witness. Of course there could be some practicing inmorality and still be a Jehovah's Witness, but only because they are good at keeping a double life. But the truth always comes out and when it does, there's consequences.
