“I would rather go to jail than reveal the names. I believe we have to protect a woman’s right to privacy,” Loeb told Page Six.
“Could you imagine if you had moved on with your life, gotten married and had children and kept this a secret from your family, then all of a sudden 15 years later (you were) made to reveal your abortion to the world. Maybe your parents never knew, maybe your husband never knew, nor your children,” Loeb added to The News.
The Modern Family star’s lawyer, Fred Silberberg says the women’s names will be protected under privacy laws and says Loeb’s argument of a “woman’s right to privacy” contradicts his case against Vergara.
“Oddly, Loeb wants us to believe that he supports a woman’s right to privacy, and to make a choice concerning reproduction. However, he seems to believe that his celebrity ex-fiancé, Sofia Vergara, does not have those same rights,” Silberberg told The News.
“In the course of discovery undertaken to defend against Loeb’s claims, Loeb, while claiming to be in support of the ‘right to life,’ disclosed that he had gotten two different women pregnant prior to his relationship with Vergara and that the pregnancies were terminated,” Silberberg said.
