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.”

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
‘Not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists’: Native American Congresswoman
One of the first two Native America women blasted President Donald Trump for siding with white nationalists on Saturday.
Following the fatal "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville in 2017, Trump claimed there were "fine people" on both sides when he defended the alt-Right and Neo-Nazi event.
Two years later, Trump has gone even further, blaming only the anti-fascist activists confronting far-right marching in Portland, Oregon in a way that reminds many of the invasion of Charlottesville.
Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) was asked about Trump's tweet by CNN's Ana Cabrera.
