April 12, 2016

(Fox News) – After countries such as India and Thailand restricted the “rent-a-womb” option for foreigners, Mexico is emerging as the next niche for this mode of reproduction and Congress is taking steps to prevent it. Currently, only the states of Tabasco and Sinaloa have laws recognizing surrogate maternity, and there are legal loopholes in the legislation. The Senate has passed a bill to amend the Health Act with the intention of regulating surrogate maternity.
