The government’s move to introduce a law - the Assisted Reproductive Technologies Bill (ART), 2010 - to ensure the protection of surrogates, the children, as well as the commissioning parents, is long over due. For some surrogate mothers renting their womb provides sufficient money to support their family and even build a house or buy a car. Oct 1, 2013
