Still, it is undeniably true that population can't just keep growing without eventually causing serious ecological consequences, so reducing rates of growth of population to a point of steady state is an important item on any progressive agenda, even if it isn't the apocalyptic priority that some people suggest.

Population aging generates intense political pressures to modify this implicit social contract by such devices as delaying the age of retirement or reducing the size of the benefit.
Although population aging and bulging age distributions are real concerns, many people's greater fear is that global population growth will overwhelm the capacity of economies and of the global ecosystem.
Worries about population growth have now come full circle: from the classical concern for limited land, to the emphasis on physical capital, to more recent emphasis on human capital and the ameliorative influence of competitive markets, to beneficial aspects of population growth, and back once again to the natural constraints urged by ecologists.

The “population problem” of the developing countries may be more pressing at this time, but in the longer perspective, it is both proper and in our best interest to participate fully in the worldwide search for the good life, which must include the eventual stabilization of our numbers.
In this view, the population problem is regarded more as the sum of such individual problems than as a societal problem transcending the interests of individuals; the welfare of individuals and that of the general society are seen as congruent, at least at this point in history.

 Population Genetics (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Population genetics is a field of biology that studies the genetic composition of biological populations, and the changes in genetic composition that result from the operation of various factors, including natural selection.
Population geneticists pursue their goals by developing abstract mathematical models of gene frequency dynamics, trying to extract conclusions from those models about the likely patterns of genetic variation in actual populations, and testing the conclusions against empirical data.
Population genetics is intimately bound up with the study of evolution and natural selection, and is often regarded as the theoretical cornerstone of modern Darwinism.
