    Joy Behar "almost died" when she suffered an ectopic pregnancy

    The 79-year-old TV host - who is currently married to Steve Janowitz but was initially married to late director Joseph Behar and has daughter Eve, 51, with him - explained that she had suffered from the kind of pregnancy where a fertilized egg implants itself outside of the womb and the whole incident proved to be near-fatal


    She said: "In 1979, I had an ectopic pregnancy ... and I almost died. An ectopic pregnancy is where an egg is growing in the fallopian tube. It can grow just enough to make the tube burst [and] ... you bleed internally, and then you die."

    However, the former 'Joy Behar: Say Anything!' star went on to explain that she was "rushed to hospital

    Speaking on 'The View', she added: "I was rushed to the hospital. The doctor the next day said we almost lost you. "I was in the situation where I could go to Beth Israel Hospital, and they took care of it there."

    However, following the U.S Supreme Court's reversal of the landmark Roe v Wade ruling - which will leave millions of women across America without access to a legal and safe termination - Joy was keen to tell her co-stars Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines that the procedure was neither an abortion nor a miscarriage and slammed the political figures who support the reversal.

    She added: "It was not an abortion, not a miscarriage. What are these people thinking about when they talk about the health of the mother? ... People like that, they cannot be in positions of power!"
