An Indian man is suing is parents for giving birth to him without his consent. He says that its wrong for parents to bring children into a world with suffering and pain - and as he didn't ask to be born, he should be paid for the rest of his life to live by his parents.

He believes in anti-natalism, a philosophy that says that life is so full of suffering we should stop procreating as to not inflict this life on the unborn.

What do you think? Do you think his case will stand up in a court of law or be laughed out? Let us know!

This is a strong case for postnatal abortion. Do you think the courts would support abortion 27 years after birth?

Blo*dy hell, i've really heard it all now. There is also a woman arguing for parents to gain consent from newborns to change their nappy. Oh dear.

Bull..shi.t. Life is not full of "suffering". Suffering is a human construct. We are just animals under this skin, driven to survive - our sole pupose. All other emotions are byproducts of survivalship. We have created an illusion to survive in, a false reality of social order that mean nothing in the scheme of survival. This man takes life too seriously. Tell him to stop being so miserable and just let go, be free.

Reminds me of the guy who sued Oxford because he didn't get a first.

He wanted attention, attention he has!

Attention seeking troll, greedy opportunist, aspiring philosopher or genuine lunatic?
There are just so many possibilities.
I wonder what specific legislation he intends to rely upon to construct his case and present it at court.

It seems he's been unable to persuade a lawyer to take his case on.
Minuscule chance of him being able to find a lawyer, judge, media outlet and influential lobbying group willing to give him the time of day.
Little prospect of him attracting any significant support in a modern pro-choice society- where the legal system, majority of the population and social climate are strongly in favour of the right to choose.
