Russia will ban the use of surrogate wombs by foreigners

Moscow, Nov 27 (Prensa Latina) The chairman of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, confirmed that next month a law that will prohibit foreign nationals from using belly surrogacy in Russia will come into effect.

‘We must ban belly surrogacy for foreigners! Child trafficking is inadmissible,’ the lower house speaker posted Sunday on his Telegram channel.

Volodin estimated at 45 thousand the number of babies born from surrogacy in Russia and taken to other countries in recent years.

It is a large-scale illegal business, which handles more than two billion euros, and often, these babies find themselves in very difficult situations, they are victims of crimes such as organ trafficking, he assured.

According to Volodin, the measure must be taken to protect children by banning foreigners from using belly surrogacy, adding that the decision will be made in early December.
