Population control

Population control policies are attempts by Governments to reduce or stabilise the human population of a country, or the world more largely.

This is based on the perceived threat of ‘overpopulation’, which is often framed as an economic, environmental, or even mortal threat to the common good of humanity.

The means by which human populations might be limited or reduced are often pernicious. There are examples of state coercion, such as the One Child policy in China, in which forced abortions and sterilisations have been used as weapons against women and unborn children. In other cases, the attempted spreading of the practice of human abortion (which is always a violation of the human right to life) to other countries has been raised as an appropriate policy measure.

Right To Life campaigns against attempts to affect such policies through the UK, or by international agencies and cooperation, and seeks to educate the public about the true nature of human population concerns.
