Ana Obregón and her efforts to Canada before launching the ‘Florida Plan’

Miami was not the first choice of Ana Obregon when she decided that she would bring a child into the world by the surrogacy method, with an anonymous egg donor and biological samples from her son Aless, who died in 2023.

The actress did not have it easy to carry out her plans. First, because she did not find all the support she would have wanted to have. In fact, the first two people she went to tried to put the idea out of her head and even exposed her opposition to play Aless Lequio father post-mortem.

But Ana Obregón was not stopped by Carolina Monk, the one who was his son’s girlfriend, nor Alessandro Lequio, the father of the deceased, they explained to him (each one by his side) that it was not a good idea. For the actress it was important to have her support, although not essential.

They were moments in which the unimaginable tear of the loss had united them a lot, but that did not imply that they agreed on everything. In addition, Ana did not know then if she was legally going to need the signatures of these two people in order to use the biological samples left by Aless.

As we have already published, Carolina, barely 24 years old, did not want the seeds that the son of Ana Obregón It had been extracted while alive, and she did not interpret the wishes of the deceased as her boyfriend’s mother. She so she manifested it then she. A similar case was that of Aless’s father. Lequio, devastated by the loss, wanted to live his duel in privacy from the beginning, as we later saw, and the last thing he could assume at that time, almost three years ago now, was a confrontation, neither public nor private, with Ana Obregón , “dead in life”, as she said, victim of the tear produced by the tragedy.

Discrepancies or different interpretations of Aless’ wishes

Both Carolina Monje and Alessandro Lequio, each on their own, disagreed from the beginning with Ana Obregón but they fled at all times from confrontations and tried to act as tactfully as possible in the face of the state of a mother who had just lost a son of her 27 years.

The point is that Ana Obregón went ahead with her purpose without the collaboration of Lequio and without that of Monje, who did not support her decision but did not actively use themselves to prevent her from doing so.

Ana’s first difficulty was getting hold of the biological samples because they were not in New York but in Barcelona, ​​that is, in Spain, where the legislation is much more severe than in other countries. For that she looked for the help from a famous woman with magnificent contacts in Barcelona. That person pulled her strings and helped her, as we already anticipated, with paperwork and many administrative difficulties related to obtaining that sperm.

But then he had to look for a womb in which to deposit the embryo resulting from fertilizing the egg from an anonymous donor from the seed of the deceased Aless, some samples that, according to different versions to the one exposed by Ana Obregon, He allowed himself to be extracted to be able to be a father while he was alive if he became sterile after cancer treatments and not to have a son or daughter after death.

It was later that Ana began negotiations in Canada to carry out the sought-after maternity. And, according to what they tell us, the first attempts to be a grandmother took place in that country. But difficulties soon arose and Ana Obregón decided that she was facing a situation of possible legal uncertainty. We cannot determine if it was the Canadian authorities who warned Ana of the limitations of surrogacy there (not as free as in Florida) or it was the actress’s legal advisors who warned their client that she could encounter obstacles in moving forward. his plan, at the age of 67, having no accredited partner, and with the semen of a specific, deceased, and relative donor. Nor do we know what papers Ana had to accompany the biological samples she provided.

Ana tried to get around some of these difficulties: she made some calls and maintained contacts to look for an adoptive father to sign a document, so that in Canada a couple would appear as the applicant, and not a single, But his request was rejected. She also encountered objections regarding the supposed economic counterparts of the pregnant woman, a matter not as easy to resolve as in the southern neighbor.

The decision was to change strategy, that is, place. That’s why moved his plans to Florida one of the most lax North American states in terms of surrogacy. It was there where he encountered fewer difficulties, at least at the legal and administrative level. There it is not important that she is a single woman, nor is it important how old she is, and there is no problem with paying the surrogate to rent her uterus. They also don’t ask too many questions about the origin of the donor. And also, at the medical level and having the necessary money, they are at the top of the ladder. That’s why Ana Sandra Lequio Obregón was born in Miami. The rest has already been told by Ana Obregón, although much remains to be known.
