New Delhi: A man in India is planning to take his parents to court for giving birth to him 'without his consent'.

 

Raphael Samuel said he had a 'great relationship' with his parents but has compared having children to 'kidnapping and slavery'.

 

The 27-year-old from Mumbai is a child-free ‘anti-natalist'  advocate who believes it is wrong to put an unwilling child through the 'rigmarole' of life for the pleasure of its parents.

 

Speaking to The Print Samuel said: '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."

 

Raphael runs an anti-natalist Facebook page called Nihilanand, which has hundreds of followers.

 

One of the memes on the page said: “Isn't forcing a child into this world and then forcing it to have a career kidnapping and slavery?”

 

Anti-natalist in India argues that having children is a strain on the Earth’s resources and avoid procreation for environmental reasons.
