Why Sofía Vergara Is Being Sued By Her Frozen Embryos And What This Means

Have pro-life people gone too far? You tell me. Sofía Vergara is being sued with a “right to live” lawsuit by her two FROZEN embryos.

The “right to live” lawsuit is prosecuting Vergara for not letting the embryos live their life.

Sofía and her ex-fiance Nick Loeb have been on a constant seesaw for the battle of the frozen embryos Emma and Isabella since 2013.

Loeb first tried suing the actress who is famously known for her role in ABC’s Modern Family.  The lawsuit was dropped when Loeb did not identify the two previous paramours who he had asked to get an abortion after impregnating them.

Persistent Loeb gave it another whirl, but this time in Louisiana. The state is known for it’s strong beliefs against abortion and grants protection for frozen embryos.

The lawsuit insists that Emma and Isabella, the frozen embryos, be born so they can accept the inheritance waiting for them in Louisiana. The inheritance includes a trust that will fund their healthcare and education, speculators say.

Before this dispute, Vergara and Loeb were a typical couple trying to start a family and had decided on in vitro fertilization.

It was successful and Vergara ended up producing five embryos. Vergara argued that she only wanted one child but Loeb insisted that she have all five or “we will go to hell,” he wrote to her according to a source.

Unfortunately, the embryos did not survive and Vergara tried twice more. She created two more embryos, the embryos that Loeb wants alive.

Sofia Vergara is now married to actor Joe Manganiello and the Colombian says that children should be the product of a loving relationship.

That being said, her embryos were created with her ex-fiance, obviously a reason for not wanting to give birth to these embryos. Vergara spoke about her fertilized eggs saying,

“I wouldn’t want to bring kids to the world where it’s already set against them.”

On the other hand, Loeb will not back down. He wrote to Page Six saying,

“A woman is entitled to bring a pregnancy to term even if the man objects. Shouldn’t a man who is willing to take on all parental responsibilities be similarly entitled to bring his embryos to term even if the woman objects?”

This brings the question, should we be making choices for the kids who aren’t born yet?

The embryos are still in Vergara’s body which should make her responsible for deciding what she does to it. We women still and should have that right.
