What is Surrogacy?
Surrogacy is a process in which a woman helps you by carrying your child in her womb and handovers your child to you after delivery in lieu of either a financial compensation or as per mutually agreed terms in the surrogacy agreement.
Surrogacy is the line of treatment for couples who have already tried every fertility treatment possible but still were unable to conceive or deliver a child or in cases where mother is unable to carry the pregnancy till term due to any other medical condition. The new surrogacy laws in India changed the way surrogacy is done now a days.
In India only gestational Surrogacy is allowed which means the woman that gives the egg cannot carry the pregnancy. The egg needs to come either from intended mother or from an egg donor and the resultant embryos are carried by another woman who is your surrogate.
New Surrogacy Laws in India 2021
The exploitation of surrogates in some remote parts of the country forced the government to throw out commercial surrogacy from the system and introduce altruistic surrogacy wherein a woman helps you by carrying your child without taking any financial compensation or gifts. The surrogacy law 2021 changed the complete scenario of surrogacy in India.
Now the intended parents who didn’t have a friend or a family relative ready to be a surrogate for them are stuck as the government wont allow them to legally proceed for surrogacy.
On one hand the government says the surrogate needs to be somebody known to you but the society on the other hand doesn’t allow for the same. A sister cannot carry her brother’s child and a sister in law cannot carry an embryo made with her brother in law’s sperm. So who is going to be your surrogate mother?
