No Kidding! Mumbai man wants to sue parents for giving birth to him without his ‘permission’

In a highly bizarre incident, 27-year-old Raphael Samuel from Mumbai wants to sue his parents for bringing him into this world. As per a report in, Samuel has compared having a child to ‘kidnapping and slavery’ saying his parents have cheated him only for their ‘joy and pleasure’.

In an interview with The Print, “I want to tell all Indian kids that they don’t owe their parents anything. I love my parents, and we have a great relationship, but they had me for their joy and their pleasure. 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.”

Samuel is from Mumbai and runs a Facebook page called Nihilanand. The report further states that Samuel is an ‘anti-natalist’ who thinks parents don’t have a right to give birth if a child doesn’t want to be born.
