Well, a new word to be added in your dictionary ‘anti- natalism’. This term implies that you are giving birth to a child and forcing life on another human being. It means that you brought them into existence to suffer the challenges or ‘work and pay’ responsibilities and other hardships that life will bestow on them without their consent.
A group of Indians who are working in favor of anti-natalism are supporting ‘childfree‘ living.
One such supporter from Mumbai, Raphael Samuel in Mumbai has sued his parents for bringing him in the world without even taking his permission. He firmly believes that no other human being has the right to force life on another human being.
It is nit that he had not to have a comfortable life or lives a life of misery, poverty or has to face hardships. He also has a cordial relationship with his parents but he is not in favor of people giving birth to a child for their own interests or pleasure.
Well, it’s a common saying that a child adds meaning to your life and completes your life, but as per him, these are self- interests and selfish reasons to give birth.
He claims that none of the Indian children owes anything to their parents. He runs a Facebook page called’ Nihilanand’ to preach his knowledge and information regarding antinatalism.
As per him by giving birth to a child you are forcing the child to have a career, or go through so many fears like kidnapping and so on. As per his teachings, the parents had the child in place of a dog or toy.
Apart from the ethics of consent, the anti-natalist movement in India supports the childfree living as it aims to reduce the strain on the resources of Earth and not depleting the resources by putting an additional burden on it. The group ‘stop making babies’ had their first ever official meeting on February 10 in Bengaluru.
A friend & I were talking about the man from #Mumbai who is going to sue his parents for giving birth to him. Discussing our understanding of the idea, we both understood where the person in question, is coming from and support him based on our own rationalisations. #antinatalism

Well I do not know what the majority thinks about this anti- natalism concept but I feel that parents could also sue him for taking birth a boy, not a girl or being good in studies and not sports as they wanted a girl child who excelled in sports, just a thought his parents have not sued him.
