The multi-billion dollar industry of surrogacy has not found prominence in legislation in India or in the nation’s public discourse. This short introduction explores how surrogacy is practiced and understood in India and across the world. It also focuses on the relationship between surrogacy and issues of reproduction, kinship, women’s bodies, assisted reproductive technologies, and transnational reproductive tourism. The author places surrogacy in the context of mythology, popular imagination, and legal and public discourses. In exploring the differences between various forms of surrogacy—commercial and altruistic, genetic and gestational, domestic and transnational—the book seeks to move beyond these opposing dualities and begin a dialogue regarding the practice.
