Sofia Vergara was confronted by a group of pro-life protesters on Thursday at the Los Angeles premiere of Magic Mike XXL. The “Modern Family” actress accompanied her fiance, Joe Manganiello, to the premiere of his film at the Chinese Theatre, but was met outside by a large group people protesting her decision not to bring to term two frozen embryos she created with ex-fiance Nick Loeb. The protesters held up signs that read, “Sofia let your daughters live,” and also vandalized her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame by writing in black marker, “#embryosdefense.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Vergara and Loeb have been locked in a bitter and public battle over two frozen embryos they created while they were still together. Loeb has gone on the record saying that he wishes to bring both embryos to term because “lives were already created.” He has also said he and Vergara signed a contract in which they both agreed to move forward with their plan, and the actress’ decision not to bring the embryos to term is a violation of that agreement.

For her part, Vergara has said she wants to the embryos to stay frozen indefinitely because she and Loeb are no longer together. She has also accused him of trying to capitalize on her fame.
