Resumen

GONZALEZ PEREZ, Ubaldo. Un razonamiento ético sobre los problemas del crecimiento de la población. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2003, vol.29, n.1, pp.73-75. ISSN 0864-3466.

Events such as destroying food productions to maintain the high prices on the market, proposing birth control programs in communities of undereducated people in return of economic benefits and the diverse forms of women discrimination in all cultures in the era of the development of Biotechnology applicable to food production have no ethical justification on analyzing the growth of the population and its possible solutions. It is known that the highest index of growth corresponds to the population of the Third World and to the poorest sectors of the developed countries, where undereducation, unemployment, and a limited or null health assistance and social security are common, as well as other difficulties generated by the unequal distribution of the gross internal product and the scarce possibility of socialization to attain a way of life and a social participation consequent with the degree of development achieved by humanity. The partial analyses of the population's problems, of gender and of reproductive health, or the attempts made by means of punctual interventions to solve them, that on ocassions have emerged from antievolutionist conceptions of the economic and juridical organization of society, do not help to find a solution. An analysis from a bioethic and systemic point of view should overcome this situation. The equitable access to resources to have a dignified life and the possibilites of appropriation of the present culture through education that allow to attain a diversified social participation, are reflected in a mediate way in the population's conscience and develop motivations for regulating natality that would make disappear the fear to overpopulation
