Article on Surrogacy in India
There is a freely available article by Raghav Sharma from National Law University, Jodhpur written quite recently (July, 2007) on the question of surrogacy with particular reference to India. Apart from a review of US laws and the cases mentioned in the last post on surrogacy, he also provides an overview of the British and Canadian (very briefly) statutes and a list (in table form) of the arguments from both sides of this issue. He has detailed the laws and past SC judgments that are likely to have a bearing upon this question in India and recommends several measures to regulate the practice. His perspective and suggestions, though debatable, are interesting. Altogether, a worthwhile read. Check it out.
