A 27-year-old man plans to sue his parents because they did not ask for his consent to bring him into the world, worldwide media report.

The 27-year-old man, who can be seen in the video wearing a sunglass and a fake beard, appears quite confident while sharing his message to the world.

This Mumbai man wants to sue his parents for giving him birth WITHOUT HIS CONSENT.

Raphael Samuel, a 27-year-old businessman in India's most populous city, made headlines this week after he took to various social media platforms to politely rebuke his parents for compounding the suffering of the world by giving birth to him. One day I was very frustrated and I didn't want to go to school but my parents kept asking me to go.

On his YouTube video, which has already gone viral, Raphael answers questions from his followers and press. He said he wanted the legal right to choose life at the age of 18 and if he can't, then his parents should pay him. "We should be paid by our parents to live", he said, Fox News reported.

"We will not be asked (to be born). It's not even possible to be asked", he further claimed. Both his parents are "good lawyers" and seem eager to prove that he does not have enough judicial elements to challenge them, according to a statement from his mother, which Samuel shared on his Facebook.

Ariana audibly screamed, "So cute!" Kate, per the source, is " very confident in her skin and is all about having a good time". Davidson and Beckinsale were reportedly seen flirting at a Golden Globes afterparty on January 6 (via Us Weekly ).

However, Raphael, had said in an interview, "I love my parents, and we have a great relationship, but they had me for their joy and their pleasure".

"My life has been awesome, 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", he said.

"Procreation is the most narcissistic act on Earth".

"I want everyone in India and also the world to realize one thing that they are born without their consent", Samuel said in the YouTube video. An antinatalist's agenda is to convince people to stop reproducing. Why?

In a recent post on Samuel's Facebook page, his mother, Kavita Karnard Samuel, seemingly responded to the controversy. She wrote that she was impressed with his "temerity" and that she will accept fault if Samuel can "come up with a rational explanation as to how (they) could have sought his consent to be born".

"A parent doesn't need to the obtain consent of someone who is unable to give consent", Frei said, adding that a newborn, under the law, is incapable of giving consent.
