Like with adoption should it be important to ensure that commissioning parents are capable of bringing up the child by ruling out alcoholism, addictions, sexual offence history, and lack of family support. Considering the above two cases – Is it important to do a background check of criminal records for all foreigners availing ART, just as it is required now that they must produce proof of marriage for 2 years. I agree that a history of criminal record and or delinquent behavior needs to be taken from all prospective parents requesting adoption or surrogacy, especially the foreign nationals. However, this should be an ethical and moral duty of the ART center rather then a statutory obligation. Doctors are expert healers and to certain extent “detectives” but not policemen. Welfare of the children born through ART has to be a considered.
