There are some children who are ever grateful to their parents and then there are some who sues the parents for giving birth to them. A 27-year-old from Mumbai falls on the latter. According to reports, the young man, identified as Raphael Samuel is planning to sue his parents for giving birth to him without his consent. Identifying himself as a complete antinatalist, Raphael propagates believes it is morally wrong of people to procreate given the fact that the life only breeds misery and burden.
The Guardian reports that Samuel had taken to Facebook to post his expression where he states that he loves his parents, but they had him for their own "joy and their pleasure." The post has now been taken down by Facebook though his other posts on antinatalism still remain on his feed. "Why must I suffer? Why must I work? Someone had you for their pleasure," reads one of them.
In an interview to Latestly, Mr Samuel explains: "Procreation is the most narcissistic act on Earth. Ask anyone why they procreate it will always start with 'I wanted.' Introducing a child into a world that is suffering is wrong. An antinatalist's agenda is to convince people to stop reproducing. Why? Because life involves a lot of suffering."
Netizens have called out the Mumbaikar by calling him ‘ingratitude’ and ‘ridiculous’ but Samuel is not one to budge by the calling of names and continues his mission.
