THE battle over Sofia Vergara’s embryos took an extraordinary turn Tuesday — when a right-to-live lawsuit was filed on behalf of the fertilised eggs against their mum.
In an April 2015 op-ed in the New York Times, Loeb outlined why he wants to protect the embryos — and potentially implant them in a surrogate.
“A woman is entitled to bring a pregnancy to term even if the man objects,” Loeb wrote.
“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?”
He says he had asked Vergara to let him have the embryos, offered to pay all the expenses and raise the two girls himself.
She would have no parental responsibility and would be declared an egg donor, but the actress refused, he said.
