Description This presentation discusses the link between overpopulation and our profession as bioethicists and healthcare providers and presents the steps necessary to end and ultimately reverse population growth. This growth can be stopped and ultimately reversed through (1) greater focus and investments into voluntary family planning methods and services, i.e., achieving full availability of contraception to all who want it, (2) greater education and empowerment of girls and women, (3) providing environmental education for all on how unsustainable human population risks humanity’s future—and all planetary life, and (4) promoting population ethics on principle worldwide (a maximum of two children per family, i.e., replacement fertility, and ideally less). The presentation concludes by warning not to ignore human overpopulation (due to its political incorrectness) because failing to do so now could mean bringing about coercive, unethical measures (such as the one-child policy) in the future.
