India Leads the Way

As many of you know, India is very close to passing a Surrogacy Bill that would effectively ban all commercial surrogacy in the nation. The bill was slated to pass on November 21 but was sent to committee for final scrutiny and revision before being finalized.

India leads the way by good example, prioritizing the well-being of women above its annual 3.3 billion euro profit from the surrogacy industry. Stop Surrogacy Now signer, Dr. Sheela Saravanan, has been instrumental in this fight. Hear her defend the surrogacy bill in this video

Dr. Saravanan’s informative book A Transnational Feminist View of Surrogacy Biomarkets in India has brought some much needed perspective and clarity to the global debate. It’s an excellent resource for those who wish to know more about the issue. You can read our review of the book here

We appreciate the courageous work of Dr. Saravanan and the many others fighting to abolish surrogacy.
