Context: Overpopulation is blamed to be the cause of many environmental issues in the past few decades. Whether overpopulation can be resolved by itself as poor countries become more developed and better living conditions lead to fewer birth rates or it still needs government policies to reach the goal of sustainable development remains a question. China’s one child policy, for example, was a procreation policy that was blamed and criticized for its violation of human rights.
Disruption: Government policies are necessary to solve the issue of overpopulation and procreation policy, for example, is morally justifiable to be applied in societies.
Response: In order to pursue the maximum wellness for the human race, government policies are necessary to be applied to control overpopulation even that require sacrifices of present pleasure. Procreation policies that are applied in search for sustainable development for future generations in fact do not violate human rights but preserve more rights in the future.
