This is the text (if you need help).

A man in India is unhappy he was born. He is suing his parents because they did not ask for his permission to be born. Raphael Samuel, 27, is an anti-natalist. He believes in anti-natalism. Anti-natalists believe people should have fewer children. They think that having children is wrong. They believe the world is a better place with fewer children. China's one-child policy was a kind of anti-natalism.

Samuel posted a video on YouTube about suing his parents. It has gone viral. He answers questions from his followers. He said: "I want everyone in...the world to [know]...they are born without their consent....They do not owe their parents anything....We should be paid by our parents to live." He added: "I love my parents...but they had me for their joy." Samuel's mother said her son must explain how she could have asked for his permission to be born.

Back to the anti-natalism lesson.
