Long overdue, thanks for broaching the topic, and what a great conversation! Excellent to hear her criticism of the Sustainable Development Goals and the stress on rights rather than responsibilities, she cuts right through all the noise and distraction. One other controversial idea that I missed here is euthanasia. Decriminalising and making acceptable birth control and abortion is incredibly important, but in my opinion we should also take a good hard look at (literally) the other end of the equation and decriminalise and make discussable euthanasia.

On a side-note, on this topic you might also be interested in the book "Should We Control World Population?" by Diana Coole.
