Hereunder are some Experts View

The draft Bill bans renting a womb for money and allows it only if the woman is doing so for altruistic reasons, which surrogacy experts dubbed illogical and unreasonable.

The draft Bill is both draconian and unreasonable. It is a violation of the reproductive right of the surrogate mother, said Hari G Ramasubramanian, surrogacy law expert and founder of Indian Surrogacy Law Centre and Gift Life Egg bank, Chennai. He questioned: “How many people actually have someone who will be willing to be a surrogate.”

Mr. Ramasubramanian said the draft Bill even banned egg donation that would only ensure that a sizeable number of people seeking IVF treatment (In vitro fertilisation or IVF, is a process by which an egg is fertilised by sperm outside the body: would not be able to take it up now.

Conclusion: It aims at regulating commissioning of surrogacy in the country in a proper manner. Commercial Surrogacy should be banned. A woman will be allowed to become a surrogate mother only for altruistic purpose and under no circumstances money shall be paid to her, except for medical expenses.
