India stops foreigners from accessing surrogacy

Publié le 27 Oct, 2015

On Wednesday, 28 October, the Indian Government announced that it “was banning foreigners from accessing its surrogacy services in order to regulate procreative tourism, which is witnessing strong growth”. The Indian Government therefore wishes to restrict surrogacy to “Indian couples only”.


In fact, since India legalised surrogacy in 2002, the country “with its low prices” has been attracting “highly qualified doctors and a large number of potential surrogate mothers”.


From 2012 onwards, the country has sought to restrict surrogacy. It has thus forbidden foreign single people and gay couples from contacting surrogate mothers (cf. Gènéthique du 21 janvier 2013).
