4. Description Abstract The hubbub following the first two uterus transplants in India seems to have died down. But it highlights gaps in the mechanisms to regulate potentially harmful research. It also flags the need to examine this controversial technique which is poised to become part of the assisted reproductive technology industry in India. Though an experimental and risky procedure, with many ethical concerns, uterus transplant is being presented here as an established practice. It is being offered as an opportunity to have a biologically related child while bypassing the limitations of surrogacy, enabling "legal, biological and gestational motherhood".
