Surrogacy: blessing or curse to poor society in India
AbstractThe advances of childbirth in the form of test tube babies and surrogate have introduced undreamt possibilities. The reproductive tourism in India is enhancing. Globally, India is one of the popular providers of surrogates and commercial surrogacy is legalized. Moreover, the cost is a mere one third of the cost in developing countries. Surrogacy raises ethical issues like medical advocacy and consent. Many social factors like unemployment, literacy, and others play a key role in surrogacy. Surrogacy is a public health problem related not only to the medical burden but also to sex ratio deterioration, female feticide, domestic violence, and others.
