According to the American Medical Association:
Ethical, social, and legal problems may arise in surrogacy arrangements. Surrogate motherhood may commodify children and women’s reproductive capacities, exploit poor women whose decision to participate may not be wholly voluntary, and improperly discourage or interfere with the formation of a natural maternal-fetal or maternal-child bond. Psychological impairment may occur in a woman who deliberately conceives with the intention of bearing a child which she will give up.

Legal since 2002, gestational surrogacy is thriving in more than 1,000 clinics in India. According to a World Bank report, the commercial surrogacy industry in that country will reach $2.5 billion by 2020.
State and describe at least three (3) ethical, social, or legal problems that may arise in surrogacy arrangements. Consider exploitation of women in poor circumstances in the U.S. or abroad.
