An Indian man has decided to sue his parents for giving birth to him. Whaaat?
Yes, this man, Raphael Samuel, claims that his parents did not ask him for permission to be born. Unbelievable? Watch the video:
This act raises many questions, most prominently, WHO has ever given permission to be born? While I’m sure many of us at some low point has asked the question, “why was I born?“, or “why was I born to these parents?” etc, I doubt anyone has actually sued their parents for bring them into the world.
What does his parents think of this? His mother responds:
First things first, wow. His parents are both lawyers. He wants to sue two (2) lawyers. Well, good luck with that.
Mum was very rational about the whole affair, “If Raphael could come up with a rational explanation as to how we could have sought his consent to be born, I will accept my fault.”
She still loves her son, and is proud for him sticking to his guns, “… very happy that my son has grown up into a fearless, independent thinking young man. …”
She also explains that “his concern for the burden on Earth’s resources due to needless life, (and) his sensitivity toward the pain experienced unwittingly by children while growing up” is what prompted him to do this.
Wow. Just wow… I suppose if he succeeds, we can go ahead and sue our parents too then. After all, no one asked to be born. 😂
