Pressure is growing for an inquiry into the international surrogacy trade after the ABC revealed another instance of a child being abandoned by the Australian contracting parents.

The latest case involves twins born to a surrogate mother in India where one was rejected by an Australian couple because of the child's gender.

The incident happened about two years ago and echoes the recent story of baby Gammy, born with Down syndrome to a Thai surrogate and rejected by the Australian couple who paid her to bear him.
