And we’ve thought we heard it all after learning that McDonald’s salted egg york loaded fries are actually sour.

And now, out of India, comes Mumbai-based Raphael Samuel, who has announced that he was planning to take legal action against his parents for giving birth to him without his consent.

Say what?

Here’s what happened.

Anti-natalist movement

A prominent member of the “anti-natalist” movement which advocates a child-free lifestyle, Mr Raphael Samuel believes that children should not be made to “suffer” life and that couples do not have a “right” to bear children without their prior explicit permission, according to UK’s Mirror and TODAYonline.

Quite how so is a couple supposed to gain juvenile consent from their un-conceived and unborn child was not something Mr Raphael Samuel had advised though.

In place of that, the 27-year-old even encourages others to confront their parents and demand an answer as to why they even decided to have kids in the first place.

In fact, he was quoted by Times Now News to have said that “(Your parents had you for their own) joy and pleasure” and suggested that kids don’t “owe their parents anything.”


Naturally, with news of his Facebook page Nihilanand being open to public, I took the liberty to visit it and share some interesting bits with you.
