Supreme Court to examine validity of bar on married couples having second child via surrogacy

The petitioners have highlighted that married couples have a right to exercise their reproductive choice of availing surrogacy to conceive a second child.

The petitioners added that their plea seeks to stop unnecessary State interference in the private lives of citizens.

The plea said Section 4 (iii)(C)(ii) of the Surrogacy (Regulation) Act, 2021, should be struck down since it has no rational basis.

“Having two children help inculcate values of sharing and caring and strengthens family bonds. Furthermore, it is in the best interests of the surviving child to have a genetically linked sibling. A biological sibling could be a match for bone marrow, tissue or organs in the event that a need for any of those arises,” the plea added.
