Overpopulation is not the problem, or the root of any problem.
God made a perfect world in Genesis Ch 1 and 2.
The only think that wrecks this world is SIN. Our first father Adam sinned, and we have contracted that deadly contagion. The only way to be free from sin is to be born again in Jesus, and even then you can still cause trouble.
If I may use the words of the Shorter Catechism...
"Q19: What is the misery of that estate whereinto man fell?
A: All mankind by their fall lost communion with God, are under his wrath and curse, and so made liable to all miseries in this life, to death itself, and to the pains of hell for ever."
Unredeemed mankind is under every curse of the Law of Moses because we have all transgressed that law. So God sent His Son Jesus into the world to redeem those that were under the Law, so that those who are saved by faith in Jesus are no longer under the curse of the Law, because, as the Scripture says,
"Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree." Galatians 3v13
This word is only for the redeemed. If you are not saved by grace through faith in Jesus, you are still under the wrath of God.
Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. John 6v37
Go to Jesus. He is only a prayer away. Be saved. Turn to Jesus. Turn, turn, and repent, and follow the Son of God, the only Saviour.
"Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10v13
