The Vergara embryo-lio

Ex-partner sues actor for abandoning her unborn


Many of us fear being sued every now and then, but as far as prospectiv­e litigants go, embryos would be pretty low down in the pecking order. Not for actress Sofia Vergara, who has just been sued by two frozen embryos that she conceived with an ex-partner. Vergara, according to papers filed in Louisiana, has “effectivel­y abandoned and chronicall­y neglected” the embryos by “refusing to consent to their developmen­t or care.” The papers identify the embryos as “Emma” and “Isabella”.
