Proposed Ban on Surrogacy in Russia


A Russian senator has proposed a ban on surrogacy, saying that current imperfect laws provide little protection for all participants of the process as well as alleging that the procedure can hurt babies born through it.

The main sponsor of the motion, Senator Anton Belyakov (Vladimir Region, central Russia) told Izvestia daily that in his opinion Russia has become an international center of “surrogacy tourism,” but regulation of this sphere lies mostly in the area of civil law. This leads to the situation in which parties in the surrogacy deal sign simple contracts in which they can mention any obligations and rights, but the law cannot guarantee that these obligations would be observed.
