Surrogacy fulfills Dream of Parenthood among Infertile Couples
The Union Health Ministry's move to tighten rules for surrogacy through the Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Bill 2010 which is to be introduced in Cabinet has created a controversy. According to sources, the proposal aims to ban foreigners from surrogacy in India and leaves it open only to married, infertile, Indian origin couples.
Pankaj Nagpal, Founder-Director of IVF Surrogacy, a private firm that offers surrogacy assistance to couples, says, "It is extremely surprising that Director General of Health Services has proposed an amendment that foreigners should not be allowed. I fail to understand why we are going backwards. The Supreme Court has said commercial surrogacy is a legal industry. Supreme Court has decriminalised homosexuality. Supreme Court has said that live-in relationships are legal. I don't understand why anyone would want to ban foreigners or unmarried couples."
In India, about 25,000 children are born through in-vitro fertilization or the IVF technique. India is the world's no 1 destination for surrogacy but the sector is totally unregulated. A report says that 10,000 foreigners visit India for reproductive services. The bill, experts say, is a necessity to address the ethical and legal issues pertaining to surrogacy. Some of the proposals, however, like the one which says only couples married for two years can have a surrogate baby are downright illogical say doctors. For firms like Surrogacy India, 90 per cent of the clientele are foreigners. Surrogacy been pushed into the mainstream by actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan who opted to have children through the procedure. But the government's plans to regulate the surrogacy industry may actually end up killing it if the proposal to ban foreign couples from having surrogate babies in India goes through.

MEXICAN STATE BANS SURROGACY FOR GAY COUPLES
The Mexican state of Tabasco has banned surrogacy for both gay and foreign couples.
Lawmakers in the southern state’s Congress voted 21 to nine in favour of the restriction searlier this week. Surrogacy is now only available for heterosexual Mexican couples.
Additionally, the woman must be between 25 and 40 years old and be able to prove that she is not medically able to have children of her own. They must also have medical insurance to cover the costs associated with the surrogate’s pregnancy, delivery and post-natal care.
Tabasco is the only state in Mexico to allow any form of surrogacy. However, as in the UK, such agreements must be strictly non-commercial. As a result, the state was a popular destination for gay people who were aspiring parents and couples from overseas. It was seen as a cheaper alternative to the United States, where costs could be as high as $150,000 (around £100,000).
There are around 500 surrogate births in the state every year, Health Secretary Juan Antonio Filigrana estimates. He claimed that women are hired elsewhere and “travel to Tabasco to give birth, taking advantage of the conveniences we offer”, which he likened to “human trafficking”.
Last month, the Indian government announced a ban on commercial surrogacy arrangements involving foreign couples.
