This chapter shows how the schools of pronatalism, antinatalism, and environmental ethics have shaped the policies of European countries with regard to procreation, as well as people’s behavior in that area. It also describes how demographic policy has evolved under the influence of progress in biotechnology, and considers the problem of the replacement of generations as a challenge for the culture of lawfulness. Numerous references. (Author abstract modified)
