I didn’t consent to my birth: Man wants to sue his parents

about the video

Yes, you read that read that. A Mumbai man says he wants to sue his parents for giving birth to him without asking for his consent. Raphael Samuel, 27, describes himself as an anti-natalist on Facebook and has posted a video on YouTube explaining his decision to sue his parents. Anti-natalists believe it is morally wrong for people to procreate. In fact one of the pictures shared by Samuel on Facebook says “procreation is the root of all evil. Stop. Having. Babies.”

In a widely seen and shared video, posted on the YouTube channel ‘Nihil Anand’, Samuel explains his stance. He can be seen in the video - not unlike his other posts - wearing a fake beard and sunglasses. “I want everyone in India and the world to realize one thing that they are born without their consent. I want them to understand that they do not owe their parents anything,” he says in the video.
