A 27-year-old man from India (Raphael Samuel) plans to sue his parents for giving birth to him without his consent. Samuel says that “it’s wrong to bring children into the world because they then have to put up with lifelong suffering” and that he understands that our consent can’t be sought before we are born, but insists that “it was not our decision to be born”. Samuel argues, “So as we didn’t ask to be born, we should be paid for the rest of our lives to live”.
