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.”[2] 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.[3] Despite this, Stericycle's Vice-President of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Selin Hoboy insists that Stericycle “does not accept fetuses”Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag This is merely a semantic ploy. According to the policy, Stericycle does not accept “complete human remains,” which includes fetuses.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag
