We are definitely living in strange times.
A 27-year-old man is taking his parents to court for giving birth to him “without his consent” simply because it is the same thing as “kidnapping and slavery.”
The man Raphael Samuel argues that although he has had a “great relationship” with his family, it is unfair to bring a child to the world to face the “rigmarole” of life because of something as fickle as sexual pleasure.
He told The Print, “’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.”
The Mumbai citizen is a proponent of the “anti-natalist” movement which is fast gaining prominence in India.
The movement argues that the younger generation should avoid having children because “The only reason your children are facing problems is that you had them.”
Besides this, parents should consider that having children affects the Earth’s resources and also degrades the Earth.
