Fox News Medical A-Team member and resident psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow argued on Tuesday that “men should be able to veto women’s abortions.”
In an interview with radio host Howard Stern this week, actress Sofia Vergara broke her silence on ex-fiancé Nick Loeb’s lawsuit to take control of her frozen embryos. Vergara said that Loeb should not have the right to use her embryos to become a single father because a child “needs a loving relationship of parents that get along, that don’t hate each other.” She also pointed out that Loeb had signed a contract that said the embryos would only be brought to term with the “consent” of both parties.
Loeb wrote in a New York Times op-ed last week that he deserved to take control of the embryos because it was “not just about saving lives; it is also about being pro-parent.”
On Tuesday, Ablow asserted that Vergara did not have “2 percent credibility in this matter.”
“The bottom line is, why would a woman’s right to decide what to do with a frozen embryo trump a man’s right every time?” he asked. “If he wants to bring these embryos to term, good for him. He wants to parent. If he wants to have them adopted, good for him. It’s not a coin toss. It’s whoever wants that potential being to survive. That’s who wins.”
Ablow suggested that the Modern Family actress was a hypocrite for acting like a liberal, but “when it comes to her choices in life, she wants all the control.”
“Not very modern, Sofia,” he opined. “You know, what their agreement is on paper should not determine the fate of a child in the world.”
“You know, I’ve been outspoken on this,” the doctor continued. “I think men should be able to veto women’s abortions if they’re willing to care for the child after it’s born.”

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.
Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."
"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."
She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
Former US Attorney makes the case for why Congress should still impeach Trump — even if he loses in 2020
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow welcomed former U.S. attorney Barbara McQuade to "the Friday night horror show" to address a situation she said, "is as bad as it looks."
"You know, there are times when I try to be the voice of reason and point out other sides of an issue," said McQuade. "But this is as bad as it looks. No. 1, we've got William Barr, who is greasing the wheels in the key U.S. Attorney's offices that have jurisdiction over the activities of President Trump. But even though, you know, maybe we should have seen this coming, and there have been all kinds of hints that it's coming, I feel no more disgusted than I, otherwise, would be that Roger Stone has seen his sentence commuted. This is a man who obstructed justice, lied to congress, threatened a witness [and his dog], and the purpose of that was to protect President Trump. You know, this isn't President Trump's rewarding Stone for being a loyal friend. This is President Trump protecting President Trump. And I think it is a terrible attack on the rule of law. So, if anything, you have not painted a bleak enough picture."
Maddow sounds the alarm on Bill Barr ‘decapitating’ US attorneys in key places that were investigating Donald Trump
While President Donald Trump's commutation of Roger Stone is garnering most of the Friday night "news dump, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow sounded the alarm about a story that she's concerned is being lost in the shuffle.
According to Maddow, Attorney General Bill Barr has fired three U.S. attorneys that are responsible for prosecuting Trump and his businesses in three specific districts, the Eastern District of New York, the Southern District of New York, and the Washington, D.C. district.
"The president's attorney general has just ousted another federal prosecutor, whose office was handling cases pertaining to the president," she said at the top of her Friday show. "Tonight, it's the Eastern District of New York. Now, if you are the president and you and your campaign, and your inaugural committee, and your donors, and your lawyers, and your campaign staff, and your longtime friends, and associates keep finding themselves accused of felonies or at least targeted or involved in serious criminal investigations. Then, if you are the president, the federal prosecutors, what you probably have to worry about are three."
