Sofia Vergara’s ex hits out over embryos

Sofia Vergara’s ex-fiance has gone public in his battle with the Modern Family actress over the former couple’s frozen embryos by penning an article for an American newspaper.

Nick Loeb recently filed suit against his ex in an effort to prevent her from destroying the embryos the former couple created when they were together.

The actress’ lawyer has fired back at the lawsuit, insisting his client had no intention of destroying them, but Loeb is continuing his fight against Vergara, insisting the battle is about “life, religion and parenthood”.

“When we create embryos for the purpose of life, should we not define them as life, rather than as property? Does one person’s desire to avoid biological parenthood (free of any legal obligations) outweigh another’s religious beliefs in the sanctity of life and desire to be a parent?” he writes in a New York Times op-ed piece.

“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?

“These are issues that, unlike abortion, have nothing to do with the rights over one’s own body, and everything to do with a parent’s right to protect the life of his or her unborn child…”

In the article, Loeb admits the couple has an agreement in place indicating the embryos could only be brought to term with both parties’ consent. He is asking for the agreement to be voided.

Loeb goes on to explain many experiences in his life – including his parents divorce, a ex-girlfriend’s abortion, his ex-wife’s fertility issues and his car accident in 2010 – have contributed to his desire to become a parent.
