Petition to The Pope

In honor of World Population Day, we, the people, respectfully call upon Pope Francis to accept a copy of Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot (OVER), and urge him to revise his recent encyclical on climate change in a way that recognizes the powerful contribution that population stabilization — achieved through investments in reproductive health and respect for the reproductive rights of women — could make to global sustainability. We furthermore request that this copy of OVER be placed in the Vatican Library for the benefit of church leaders, including future pontiffs.
