India has been a leading for hub for surrogacy for quite some time now. The first surrogate surgery was performed in 1994, but it wasn’t legally recognised until the year 2002. Following that year, surrogacy in India has been increasing ever since. People from across the globe fly into the country every year to have their baby.This has led to surrogacy becoming a major “industry” in the country. Even though it has been widely recognized and such vast global onset of surrogacy, it is still an unorganized sector. Even though it is now legally accepted and women are paid well for it, it still raises a lot of ethical issues.Most of the women involved in surrogacy in India come from the lower sections of the society. Due to their lower standards of education they are still not aware of their legal rights and this often leads to her being exploited by the agents and clinics. They are not provided with any care post delivery which increases the chances of infections and other post delivery complications.Surrogate mothers are not legally recognized as “workers” in India and hence they do not have any legal rights. Also there is a fear of social stigma if the surrogates name is revealed as it is still something that is looked down by some sections of the society.Besides the mother, there are issues faced by the parents as often due to the IVF procedure more than one embryo gets fertilized, leaving the parents to choose between the babies. Sometimes due to prenatal growth complications, the baby also has to be aborted, crushing the dreams of the parents.Sometimes problems arise when the child is born with birth defects are often abandoned. There are also issues with citizenship sometimes with parents coming from abroad and this puts the child’s future in jeopardy.Pertaining to all of these ever growing issues it is essential to lay out legit laws regarding surrogacy and recognizing it as a sector of employment and providing rights for the women.
