Who is the Little Red Hen?

J. Love (Jennifer Love Hewitt) is freezing her eggs according to the March 11, 2013 edition of Us Weekly. She hopes to use them someday to become a mother. What if she decides to use a surrogate for reasons of age or health? In the children’s story, The Little Red Hen, the hen got to keep her loaf of bread because she planted the seed, watered it, harvested it, ground the flour, and baked it. Does a surrogate get to keep the baby if she decides not to give it up? In Louisiana, the answer is, under certain circumstances, “no”. A Louisiana statute allows a husband and wife to donate eggs and sperm to a surrogate who is a relative. They are that child’s biological parents as a matter of law.

I would like to start by saying I am from TX and my ex wife tried to file a judgment in LA. I contacted a number of lawyers that explained to me that this maybe a process that they could look into.
