Surrogacy in India
Abstract: Surrogacy refers to a contract in which a woman carries a pregnancy for another couple. It is a scientific boon using burrowed eggs, sperms or wombs for child bearing for some unblessed couples. Numbers of Infertile couples approach India from all over the world where commercial surrogacy is legal. Actually the debate is between the uses of this scientific method on pure humanitarian ground to misuse of this method for commercialization. It is a need based temporary relationship between burrower looking for cheaper resource for the genetic makeup of the baby of their own and the lender for financial gains compromising with her social, physical and emotional health while nourishing the dream child which may come at the cost of her own family. Although this temporary arrangement appears to be beneficial for both the parties but there are certain delicate issues which need to be addressed through carefully framed laws in order to protect the rights of surrogate mothers and the intended parents.
