This Indian man is angry at his parents for giving birth to him without his consent.

Raphael Samuel from Mumbai, India, said he’d compare having children to "slavery" and "kidnapping", Metro reports.

"I love my parents, and we have a great relationship, but they had me for their joy and their pleasure," Samuel argues.

"My life’s been amazing, but I don’t see why I should put another life through the rigmarole of school and finding a career, especially when they didn’t ask to exist," he says of having children of his own.

The 27-year-old, who’s part of the anti-natalist philosophy which encourages people worldwide to stop procreating, says it’s wrong to put a child through life for the pleasure of its parents, according to Lad Bible.

"Other Indian people must know that it’s an option not to have children, and to ask your parents for an explanation as to why they gave birth to you," he says.

Samuel runs a Facebook page called Nihilanand. The page is followed by about 1 400 people.

In numerous posts made in the group, he asks his followers to question why they’re alive.

"Your parents had you instead of a toy or a dog," he captioned one post. "You owe them nothing. You’re their entertainment."

"The only reason your children are facing problems is because you had them," another said.
