The human body is an amazing mechanism. Future reproductive technologies such as test tube babies, surrogate motherhood via novel reproductive techniques, and cloning will open up hitherto unimaginable sexual options. Surrogacy is an assisted reproductive technique in which a woman consents to get pregnant in order to carry and give birth to a child for the benefit of other people. Certain legal regimes have permitted surrogacy, and the intended parents could be acknowledged as the biological parents from the moment of birth. In India, the market for "womb for rent," or commercial surrogacy, is expanding. Reproductive tourism is a relatively new phenomena in our fast-globalising environment. In a nation like India, where the incidence of maternal deaths is already startlingly high, the surrogacy industry takes advantage of impoverished women. In the context of surrogacy, this study discusses concerns related to paternity and women's health rights. To safeguard and counsel couples considering this choice, the government of India should give careful thought to passing legislation regulating surrogacy. Patients will always mislead and surrogates will always be taken advantage of in the absence of a strong legal framework
