Stericycle is a corporation founded in 1989 in the U.S.A. which operates internationally, picking up medical waste from medical facilities and disposing of it. Stericycle is noted for its involvement with the abortion industry, collecting the remains of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them and taking them to be incinerated.
Formed in 1989, Stericycle's primary business comprises disposal services for medical and biohazardous waste. The corporation serves hospitals, laboratories, physician practices, dental clinics, long-term care facilities, as well as numerous other businesses, facilities, and healthcare providers that generate sharps or potentially infectious material. Within the United States, Stericycle maintain the nation’s largest network of medical waste transport vehicles, collection sites, and treatment facilities. Globally, Stericycle operates medical waste services in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Romania, Spain, and Portugal.
Stericycle & Planned Parenthood
Stericycle representatives have informed individuals at the "Campaign to Stop Stericycle" that Planned Parenthood is one of Stericycle’s largest clients and that Stericycle services “multiple regions of Planned Parenthood.” Planned Parenthood—Northeast Ohio’s records show that it has used only Stericycle to dispose of its medical waste (including aborted fetuses) since April 2014, and Planned Parenthood's legal counsel confirmed this to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. Despite this, Stericycle's Vice-President of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Selin Hoboy insists that Stericycle “does not accept fetuses” in accordance with its Regulated Medical Waste Acceptance Policy. This is merely a semantic ploy. According to the policy, Stericycle does not accept “complete human remains,” which includes fetuses. However, babies are not “complete” after being dismembered, decapitated, and disemboweled in standard abortion methods. Their broken parts and torn tissue are categorized by Stericycle as “pathological waste”—defined as “human or animal parts, organs, tissues, and surgical specimens" which Stericycle's policies state that they do accept. So while Stericycle may not be picking up intact fetuses, they do accept aborted babies’ fragmented body parts. Stericycle uses this technical exemption to justify their continued collaboration in child-killing.
Providing this medical waste disposal service to Planned Parenthood enables the killing of preborn children. Planned Parenthood depends upon the services of medical waste companies to dispose of dead babies. Without those services, Planned Parenthood would be unable to dispose of the babies they kill and the murder of millions of innocent children by Planned Parenthood would likely halt.
