Description This presentation discusses the link between overpopulation and our profession as bioethicists 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).
