The Solicitor General of India, Mr. Gopal Subramanian had informed the Supreme Court that the Government is presently considering the legal and moral aspects of surrogacy in India, and the law on surrogacy is expected soon. The German couple is left with the only option of adopting the twins, so that they could be taken to Germany, where surrogacy is an offence but international adoptions are allowed. The couple’s lawyer Nageswara Rao said inter-country adoption was cumbersome and time-consuming and it would be another five-six months before the couple could take the children home legally. The Supreme Court reminded the Government of India that the children of Mr. Jan Balaz are already in India for  almost two years now and that the Government needs to act speedy with regard to children’s case.  Mr. Gopal Subramanian also informed the court that he had sent a letter to the Union of India over the issue and that he expects a speedy returns for the same.

2 Thoughts on “Parliament soon to enact Surrogacy Law

    Indian Govt. ART provisions make it complicated and create a breed of unknown parentage.

    The bill states that know friend or known person or relative can be a gamete donor making it costlier for Indian opting for ART. At the same time helping the single men /woman/gay/lesbians from other counties to buy the gametes.

    Complete secrecy is maintained in the process this is not acceptable for Indian mindset After all we are people of the country where Mahatma Gandhi was born. A man known for truth and transparency.

    By preventing known donor to donate the gametes what the bill is achieving I don’t know at least it is not making a caste less society as presumed by the committee. It is creating only a breed of children whose parentage is unknown.

    This provision only brings a big secret, which is very hard to keep and at the same time to accept, in to the life of Parents and Children born Out of donations that too at a huge cost . So it is better if the bill allows for known donors .

    Preventing the ART clinics from hiring surrogates is a goo idea in preventing unethical practices.
    Establishing ART banks helps only the foreign gay/unconcerned couple. India is society divided on the basis of caste so people tend to choose their surrogates on the basis of caste is not very much true choosing will be there on the basis of caste/color/looks etc.It is just because, unlike the west most Indians are not unconcerned with the well being of the mother of their child . They like to care for her, even long after the job is completed. In case they have to bring her to their home ,or visit her if she of the same caste, it helps hide the real fact from peeping eyes .
    So it is better to Ask the commissioning couple to bring their own surrogates through paper advertisements .
    ART banks help only in commoditizing the woman.
    Helps only the Foreigners at the expense of Indians

    Draft wont say anything about the unmarried women working as surrogates and the child living status of the surrogate mother . It should be made mandatory for woman to have at least one surviving child of her own to act as a surrogate .

    Lastly the bill is aiming at commoditizing human life may be that of the child /surrogate etc. Aiming and facilitating the ends of foreign nationals and a bunch full of ART cleanics all the while giving wrong signals to the society.
