Shoot This Now


A 27-Year-Old Is Suing His Parents Because He Didn't Consent to Be Born (feat. Trey Williams)

Season 1, Ep. 47

Six months ago, Raphael Samuel informed his mother over breakfast that he planned to sue his parents for bringing him into existence without his consent. His story should be a movie, obviously.

Every week on "Shoot This Now," we talk about stories that should be made into TV shows or movies. This week, Trey Williams joins us to talk about the strange case of Raphael Samuel, whose story -- including the breakfast conversation -- is told in this BBC account.

This episode includes a brief discussion of suicide. If you've given it any serious thought -- please don't do it. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255.
