Surrogacy as a Business

Surrogacy as a Business | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

“India legalized surrogacy in 2002 as part of a larger effort to promote medical tourism. Since 1991, when the country’s new procapitalist policies took effect, private money has flowed in and fueled construction of world-class hospitals that cater to foreigners. Surrogacy tourism has grown steadily here as word has gotten out that babies can be incubated at a low price and without government red tape. Patel’s clinic charges between $15,000 and $20,000 for the entire process, from in vitro fertilization to delivery, whereas in the handful of American states that allow paid surrogacy, bringing a child to term can cost between $50,000 and $100,000, and is rarely covered by insurance.”

India – An International Case Study on Assisted Reproductive Technologies

India – An International Case Study on Assisted Reproductive Technologies | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

“The authors argue, “As markets for human organs, tissues and reproductive body parts experience unprecedented growth, the limits of what can or should be bought and sold continue to be pushed. As such, bodies have emerged as sale-worthy economic capital. Commercial flows of reproductive material create and deploy the division of the body into parts over which ownership is claimed, in the process following 'modern routes of capital’ and raising issues of structural inequality.””

Discover Top Medical Tourism Facilities Amongst Extreme Poverty | Medical Tourism News | Scoop.it

You may be wondering how it is that a third world country can offer medical services at a state of the art facility. How is it possible that a country can offer services to foreigners that it cannot offer to all of its own citizens?

It may seem, at first glance, that it is wrong to have multi-million dollar state of the art facilities sitting amidst extreme poverty. One has to look beyond the surface to see what the intent is.
