India's Surrogacy Bill: Whose Womb is it anyway?
The case is structured to achieve the following teaching objectives:
- Critically analyze how India evolved into a major surrogacy hub and most preferred destination for foreign surrogacy requirements and fertility tourism.
- Appreciate the dimensions involved in a woman making the decision to rent her womb.
- Debate the limits of public policy — does it extend to restricting the choice of women on what do with their wombs?
- Evaluate the implications of passing a law that would intrude on the freedom of women making a decision on renting their womb to a needy parent.
- Evaluate the economic impact of a restriction on surrogacy in the country..
- Compare the laws on surrogacy in different countries and evolve the right course for India given the relevant factors..
