In India, Couples Exploited by Unregulated Industry of Surrogacy

September 19, 2016

(NPR) – Couples who can’t conceive a child look for all kinds of alternatives in order to become parents, including surrogacy, when you pay a woman to carry and give birth to your baby. India is preparing to ban this practice altogether. As NPR’s Julie McCarthy reports, that move could protect women who serve as surrogates from exploitation, but it could also take an economic toll.
