India to Regulate 'Surrogacy Tourism'
India says it will introduce laws to regulate the lucrative "surrogacy tourism" practice of Indian women bearing children on behalf of childless Westerners.
Being surrogate mothers offers financial freedom for many Indian women, often allowing them to escape India's slums and move into better housing with the proceeds gained from surrogate pregnancies, The Guardian reported Friday.
Since the practice was legalized in 2002, India has become a world center of "surrogacy tourism".
