Son sues parents over his existence.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
MUMBAI — In a nonsensical development, 27-year-old Raphael Samuel is suing his parents because, get this: they brought him into the world without his permission. Rather than thank mom for 9 months of abdominal shelter and sustenance, the ungrateful bastard hired a lawyer. Raphael, an Indian man from Mumbai, said he didn’t ask to be born. He’s also convinced life is so full of melancholy, we should cease procreation. “I was a normal kid,” Raphael told reporters.
“One day I was very frustrated and I didn’t want to go to school. But my parents kept asking me to go. So I asked them: ‘Why did you have me?’ And my dad had no answer. I think if he’d been able to answer, maybe I wouldn’t have thought this way.”
Now, in Raphael’s defense, his folks could’ve provided some form of loquacity; even if it’s a lie.
Just say, “because we love you” or “you’re special.”
Hell, anything would’ve been better than dead silence.
Just a few days ago, a man named Raphael Samuel from Mumbai, stunned everyone when he said he was suing his parents for giving birth to him, without his consent.
What's even more shocking is that his mother has shown support for her son's ideology.https://t.co/D4qyjtDOF8

Even though the litigation process is underway, Raphael doesn’t like his chances of winning. After all, it’s an unprecedented case and both of his parents are lawyers. To Raphael, it’s all about the principal. “I know it’s going to be thrown out because no judge would hear it,” Raphael deadpanned.
“But I do want to file a case because I want to make a point.”
Realizing her son is cuckoo, Raphael’s mother posted a retort on Facebook.
“I’m Raphael’s mother and this is my response to the recent upheaval my son has created:”
“1) I must admire my son’s temerity to want to take his parents to court knowing both of us are lawyers.”
“2) 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.”
What’s your take?
Do you agree with Raphael?
Is he nuts?
Should we sue our parents?
Should we, as a society, stop certain people from havin’ kids?
