Is fertility tourism in India exploitative?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 06/26/2017

The truth is, there exists a broad debate on this subject, particularly when it comes to addressing the situation of surrogacy arrangements in India. This is the reason why the Indian Government changed the policies governing this treatment in 2015.

From that moment on, surrogacy was not allowed to foreign patients anymore unless it is also permitted in their country of origin and they are a heterosexual couple. Such drastic action was taken to prevent India from becoming a main destination for commercial surrogacy arrangements, which contributes to the exploitation of Indian women living beneath the poverty line.
