In this memo, the writer argues that the One Child Policy in China is a purely political, and not cultural, policy that has not furthered the economic, social, medical, or environmental well being of China's society as a whole. This memo further supports the claim that the One Child Policy is a violation of the most basic human rights of mankind and has brought about an even more egregious form of human rights violations in China; infanticide.

From the Paper:

"Much work and research has gone into the preparation of this memo. Acknowledging the cultural and traditional beliefs and practices of a foreign culture is essential to the research, understanding, and determination of a violation of human rights. In this memo, I will outline the steps that were taken in the research that supports the conclusion that China's One Child Policy is void of traditional or cultural heritage, and therefore makes the policy a purely political one."
