India Bill Would Ban Single and Gay Intended Parents from Having Children Through Surrogacy

From: http://www.thehindu.com

Doctors say many practitioners have stopped doing surrogacy procedures for single men and women after the draft Bill was passed last year.

The draft Bill, currently pending with the parliamentary committee, also puts an end to commercial surrogacy and allows it only in an altruistic form without any monetary benefit to the surrogate mother, who has to be a blood relative.

According to the draft Bill, only a blood relative aged 25 to 35 years can become a surrogate. The woman also has to be married and should have a child of her own. Doctors say there are so many limitations in the Bill that surrogacy will practically disappear when it comes into place.
