‘Politics of the Womb’: A Book That Shows Why The Commercial Surrogacy Ban Is Essential

Coming on the heels of the new Bill which bans commercial baby-bearing or surrogacy is an uncompromising investigation into the serious health hazards of assisted reproduction, the murky market for genetic materials to create designer babies and the ruthless exploitation of women. Packed with alarming data from global studies and interviews with leading practitioners, surrogate mothers, couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF), fixers and donors, Politics of the Womb, is a seminal work by writer-activist Pinki Virani... and it hasn't come a day too soon.
