A Man Want To Sue His Parents For Bringing Him Into The World Without His Consent

A 27-year-old Indian businessman is planning to sue his parents for bringing him into the world without his consent.

The BBC reports that Raphael Samuel from Mumbai identifies as “anti-natalist,” a belief that life is so insufferable that people should stop procreating.

“There’s no point to humanity. So many people are suffering,” Samuel said, according to the BBC. “If humanity is extinct, Earth and animals would be happier. They’ll certainly be better off.  Also, no human will then suffer. Human existence is totally pointless.”

Samuel, who acknowledges that it would be impossible to gain consent from an as-yet-unconceived human, has yet to find a lawyer to take up his case. 

Samuel's parents are both lawyers.
