India's surrogacy industry faces regulation


Fertility clinics in India are booming. The services on offer have been referred to as the country's 'rent-a-womb' industry.

The number of foreigners going to India for fertility treatments, especially surrogacy, has dramatically increased in recent years.

At present there are no laws governing industry practices and while a new bill has been presented to the government, there are growing fears about the commercialisation of surrogacy in India.
