“I hired someone to take 20 bottles and put it into my garbage disposal.” – Abortionist Renee Chelian
According to the abortion industry’s own experts, medical waste companies such are the abortion industry’s weak link.
See how to defeat Planned Parenthood.
In December of 2015, the Ohio Attorney General reported in Planned Parenthood Investigation Summary Regarding Disposal of Aborted Fetuses that Stericycle disposes of fetal remains for Planned Parenthood (PP) facilities.
Read the transcript of Attorney General DeWine’s press conference exposing Stericycle’s enabling of Planned Parenthood to kill children.
In 2016, Created Equal launched #ProjectWeakLink aimed at forcing Stericycle, America’s largest medical waste hauler, to cease disposing of aborted fetuses for Planned Parenthood. After the launch of the project, Stericycle sued Created Equal and Mark Harrington for what they considered to be defamation, false light, and the infliction of emotional distress against Stericycle’s CEO Charles Alutto. After a six-month court battle, Stericycle dropped all the charges.

Despite claims to the contrary, Stericycle’s collaboration with Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry through its collection, transportation and disposal of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them is well documented (see Evidence). Providing these service enables the killing of preborn children. Planned Parenthood depends upon medical waste companies to dispose of dead babies.
In May 2017, we wrote Mr. Alutto requesting information on the status of Stericycle’s relationship with Planned Parenthood.
Here is an excerpt from Mr Alutto’s response dated June 1, 2017:
In addition to complying with all laws and regulations, the waste acceptance policy clearly specifies that Stericycle does not accept fetuses. While your organization may argue that our policy applies only to intact fetuses, we interpret and apply the policy more broadly to include all fetal remains.
Beyond our policy, we require supplemental assurances in writing that they (health care facilities) have licensed providers for fetal remains. When customers are not willing to provide this certification, we do not provide services. We have cancelled hundreds of contracts with women’s clinics since this certification process was implemented several years ago.”
Historically, Stericycle, either by neglect or intent, did not enforce their medical waste protocol which was meant to refuse fetal remains. Therefore, in practice, Stericycle had been providing services to abortion clinics to dispose of fetal remains.
Stericycle disclosed that they recently cancelled hundreds of contracts (over 400 in the past few years) with abortion facilities.
Stericycle has taken a vital first step in the process of ceasing its involvement with the abortion cartel. We will “trust but verify” Stericycle’s claims regarding their refusal to dispose of fetal remains from abortion companies. However, they still are providing other waste services to a small number of abortion centers and therefore will remain, for now, an enabler of Planned Parenthood and child-killing. Therefore, we remain committed to persuading Stericycle to dump Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry altogether.
