Man to sue parents for giving birth to him ‘without his consent’
An Indian man has stated openly on his Facebook page that he will sue his parents for giving birth to him ‘without his consent’.
Raphael Samuel, an anti-natalist, frequently posts against having children on his Facebook page. His page Nihilanand has hundreds of followers who support his ideas and beliefs against having children.
In the past as well, he has likened having children to ‘kidnapping and slavery’.
‘My life has been amazing, but I don’t see why I should put another life through the rigamarole of school and finding a career, especially when they didn’t ask to exist,’ he said while speaking to The Print.
Though Samuel says that he has a ‘great relationship’ with his parents but still he plans to sue them for giving birth to him without his consent.
His page contains various memes in which having children is slammed.
One meme says, ‘A good parent puts the child above is wants and needs… but the child itself is a want of the parent’.
Another: ‘If parents truly know what is good for their children… why did they have them?’
A third: ‘Isn’t forcing a child into this world and then forcing it to have a career kidnapping and slavery?’.
