An Indian man says he plans to sue his parents for bringing him into this world without his consent.

According to India's The Print, Raphael Samuel of New Delhi alleges his parents had him for their own enjoyment and wants other children to know they don't owe their parents anything.

"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," Samuel said.

Samuel's view is aligned with the theory of "anti-natalism," which claims that children shouldn't be forced to be born.
