Is this new birth control patch the solution to overpopulation?

Overpopulation has huge environmental implications, including the depletion of natural resources, pollution, and increased fossil fuel emissions. But researchers at Georgia Tech have recently developed an experimental birth control patch that can administer a month of contraceptive hormones after being applied to the skin for only a few seconds. The inexpensive patch is ideal for areas without access to professional health care and can provide a new family planning option for women in the developing world.
