A 27-year-old man from India has decided to take legal action against his parents from having him without his consent.
Raphael Samuel, a self-proclaimed antinatalist, believes it is wrong to procreate since it leads to a life of misery.
Samuel managed to raise eyebrows across the world with his plans to sue his parents. The Antinatalist compares having babies to slavery and kidnapping.
According to the Guardian, Samuel said he loved his parents but they had him for their own "joy and pleasure".
"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," he said in an interview with Latestly.

Social media users were left divided over Samuel's beliefs, with many slamming him for 'slapping' his parents in the face.
