No more rent-a womb. India unveils plans to ban surrogacy

The Indian government has unveiled a draft law which would ban commercial surrogacy.

If approved by parliament, the law will also ban people who do not hold an Indian passport, as well as Indian single parents and gay people, from having children through surrogacy.

 

Couples who have been married at least five years and are infertile can seek a surrogate, that too from among close relatives. Foreigners, overseas Indians, single parents and live-in couples can’t.

 

The Bill also prohibits couples who already have biological or adopted children from commissioning babies through surrogacy.
