The women who chose to become surrogates in India during this time were subjected to unethical treatment, poor living conditions and exploitation. To keep up with demand from international intended parents, Indian surrogacy agencies effectively ran “baby factories,” where Indian women were forced to live until they gave birth to the intended parents’ babies — with usually no assistance for the family they had left behind while pregnant.
In response to these stories emerging over time, the Indian government attempted to take steps to make the process safer for all involved. Unfortunately, that resulted in a restrictive process that has made the process more difficult or completely impossible, rather than safer.
