SURROGACY, AN ACT OF GENEROSITY OR PERVERSION? ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY


The emerging surrogacy market in India has once more drawn attention to this highly controversial mode of having a family. Is surrogacy an act of generosity enabling infertile couples to taste the joys of parenthood or is it a completely unnatural, unthinkable medical development. Should making babies be big business or is this area of human life sacred? Do your research and write an argumentative essay on this highly topical issue which is trending now.
