Things you should know about SURROGACY

Adoption is a process whereby brings happiness in the life’s of a childless couple and give a brighter future to an orphan child. But when a woman carries a baby in her womb for another couple and at the time of birth gives up the baby to them then it is surrogacy. Earlier commercial surrogacy grew tremendously in our country. An estimation of nearly $2 billion was found in this industry. Many countries like Ukraine, Russia etc. has barred commercial surrogacy but in India before November in 2015, 80 percent surrogacy births were accounted. After that government imposed a ban. People are oblivious to the fact that surrogacy is completely prohibited in many countries in Europe, both to guard the reproductive health of the mother and future of the infant.

The Surrogacy Bill 2016 intends to regulate the surrogacy in India by making it an option for the couples who cannot have babies naturally, as they suffer from lack of supporting reproductive technology; however, they still want to have a biological child so they can look for a surrogate mother among their relatives. The altruistic Surrogacy (an arrangement without transferring the funds as inducements) is currently practiced at some places in India, although there a large number of surrogacy centers who hire surrogacy mothers for child births.

The child born with the help of surrogacy will have equivalent rights to any biological child. Indian infertile couples between the age of 26-55 (man) & 23-50 years (woman) who are married and have been living together as husband and wife since last 5 years and don’t have any surviving child are eligible for surrogacy. The only condition is that the surrogate mother should be a close relative of the couple who is 25-35 years of age and have never been used as a surrogate mother before. Implementation will be done through national and state surrogacy boards. Any founding of abandoning the child, selling a human embryo, exploitation of the surrogate mother, undertaking commercial surrogacy is highly punishable. The registered surrogacy clinics are supposed to maintain records for at least 25 years.
