Why Surrogacy in India is not a cold commercial transaction.

 on surrogacy seems to me that the Daily mail has special vested interest in Indian also seems the Journo has not done a detailed study but seems to have based his article on numerous other articles written on similar lines by vested foreign journalists who are being paid by Clinics and agencies abroad who are afraid of loosing their patients to Indian clinics.
By saying that India has reduced surrogacy to a cold commercial transaction is doing a great disservice to the Indian Doctors,their staff,the infertile patients,their babies and the hundreds of surrogate mothers who offer their wombs to carry a baby for 4 lac amount which they will probably never earn in their lifetime.the Journo is also not aware that the Govt. Of India is allowing only married Heterosexual couples to have babies through surrogacy in INDIA since the beginning of this year another reason to believe it is a paid story.

the journalist advocates adoption as a alternative,well he wouldn't if he had applied for adopting a child in one of the numerous adoption centres in has to wait for atleast 2 to 5 years to adopt a baby subject to the numerous illogical checks and balances in the adoption law.
by using word like "cheap",he shows that Some Indians have not gotten over deriding their own people in front of the entire world.American clinics perform the most number of ivf surrogacy cases worldwide yet one never hears a story like this about the American surrogacy clinics and Agencies.
What Indian ART clinics and Doctors  offers is unique and nothing short of a miracle and what the Surrogate's offer is an absolutely selfless act of Altruism and no article or journalist can take this away from them.
