The Sofia Vergara Embryo Trial Could Change Men’s Rights Forever

September 19, 2016

(New York Post) – “Modern Family” bombshell Sofia Vergara and financier Nick Loeb’s efforts to have a child through in-vitro fertilization led to more than just their breakup — it’s now a potential landmark court case. In 2013, the then-golden couple twice had an egg, fertilized by his sperm, placed into a surrogate. But both procedures failed, and the stress over the process — along with what to do with their remaining two frozen female embryos — caused the couple’s May 2014 breakup.
