All returns must be accompanied by an original receipt

Close on the heels of last week's story on the unregulated business of fertility tourism in India comes this jaw-dropping tale.


A Japanese child born to a surrogate Indian mother in Jaipur has no home to go to. Her parents got divorced before her birth and her mother doesn't want their child. The Indian laws concerned with surrogate motherhood say that the father alone cannot adopt a child. There is also ambiguity about child being allowed to go to Japan. Her father would like to take her home, but under Indian surrogacy law he'd have to adopt her, which a single man is not allowed to do.

I know, it doesn't make sense to me either.
