Sofia Vergara is a 42-year-old actress with dual citizenship in the US and Columbia. Her television career started with on the Spanish language network Univision in the late 1990s. From there, she has appeared in several movies and a variety of television programs. She is most noted for her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on the sitcom Modern Family and more recently has been appearing in numerous commercials for Pepsi, Cover Girl, Head & Shoulders Shampoo and Ninja Coffee Bar.
Vergara married Joe Gonzalez, a high-school sweetheart when she was just 18. They had a son in 2000 and then divorced in 1993. In 2012, it was reported that she was engaged to Nicholas M. Loeb.
Before breaking off the engagement with Loeb in 2014, the couple had two fertilized embryos frozen. Since the bitter breakup, there has been a long running legal battle over many issues between the couple.
In the latest legal battle, it was just reported that a lawsuit against Vergara has been filed in a Louisiana court on behalf of the two female embryos. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit are listed as Emma and Isabella since both have been identified as being female. The lawsuit claims that since Emma and Isabella have been born that that they are ‘being deprived of an inheritance from a trust that has been created for them in Louisiana.’ The lawsuit goes on to ask the court to turn the two embryos over to Loeb who wants to give them the chance of life so they can receive the trust, which will more than pay for their needs and healthcare.
You may ask why Louisiana and the reason is that the state is a very strong pro-life state that has laws offering special protection for frozen embryos.
When Vergara and Loeb were together and had the fertilized embryos frozen, they signed a contract in California stating that neither party could have access to the embryos without the consent of both Vergara and Loeb. The lawsuit filed this week claims that the contract violated California and Louisiana law and therefore should be voided.
Per the lawsuit, Vergara and Loeb exchanged messages in March 2013 that read:
Loeb: “You can’t keep 4 frozen lives forever or kill them, we will go to hell.”
Vergara responded: “We r going to hell regardless…I’m doing it because I want you to have a baby.”
On two occasions, the couple tried invitro fertilization IVF, but both attempts failed to produce a child. After the couple broke up in May 2014, Loeb reminded Vergara that they still had 2 fertilized frozen babies. Loeb contends that during their two-year engagement and Vergara, a strong Catholic, often stated that under no circumstance should the embryos be destroyed. However, Loeb contends that she has now gone back on that commitment.
The lawsuit could set a precedent if it is upheld in the Louisiana courts. The question of whether a fertilized, yet unborn embryo, has rights could be monumental. If the court says yes, they do have rights to be born, then that could be used a legal basis to ban all abortions since once fertilized, the embryo would be considered to be fully human.
Right-to-life advocates all over the United States would use this ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade and stop the horror of slaughtering millions of unborn babies on the altar of liberal idolatry.
In Ohio, a fetal heartbeat law has just passed the State Legislature and now goes to the desk of Governor John Kasich to sign or veto. Kasich, who claims to be a right-to-life conservative Republican, has said in the past he would veto a fetal heartbeat bill only to avoid the cost of legally trying to defend such a bill. To date, every state that has passed a fetal heartbeat bill which bans all abortion if a fetal heartbeat is detected, as early as 6 weeks, have been challenged and overturned by liberal judges and Kasich is afraid of the same thing happening.
However, if the Louisiana court case of Emma and Isabella v. Sofia Vergara is upheld, it could well change things and end up saving millions of babies from being brutally butchered and murdered before they draw their first breath.
