    "Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara is being sued by a Louisiana pro-life group representing two frozen "pre-embryos," or fertilized eggs that have not been implanted, she created via IVF with her former fiancé, businessman Nick Loeb. 

    The frozen fertilized eggs, which are stored in an Los Angeles facility have been the center of a long legal battle, resulting in this week's lawsuit.

    The bizarre lawsuit demands that Loeb, whom Vergara split from in 2014 amid abuse allegations, be given sole custody of the pre-embryos, which he's named "Emma" and "Isabella." The suit says a trust was created for the embryos in Louisiana, which has laws that allows an embryo to sue a person.
