A local media outlet in Georgia combed through five years of state health inspections from local abortion clinics and found several disturbing violations. WSBTV, channel 2, said they spent a month looking at the health documents after the release of undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation.

State inspections Georgia Abortion

In their investigative report, after they learned that these abortion facilities were not improperly disposing of aborted babies, Channel 2 said they wanted to see exactly what the state had found after performing a complete inspection of abortion facilities. They also wanted to know how often the inspections are done. So, they said the TV station filed an open records report with the state asking for state inspection reports of licensed abortion clinics dating back five years.

What WSBTV discovered would horrify the public. According to their report, the following violations were documented during state health inspections of these so-called “safe and legal” abortion facilities:

    Expired Medications and medical instruments
    Unsterilized equipment
    Sterile and nonsterile supplies stored in the same room
    The vent in a biohazard room taped off with cardboard
    Stirrups wrapped in duck tape
    Iodine swabs used to prevent wound infections expired by 10 years
    Soiled linens in surgical rooms to name a few.

In addition, the TV station discovered that one of the abortion clinics cited by the state was a Planned Parenthood facility located in Augusta. According to their findings, that Planned Parenthood abortion clinic had 23 health or safety violations in one year alone and was fined by the state. However, they also discovered that health inspectors did not return to the Planned Parenthood abortion center to see if the violations had been corrected until two years later.

Virginia Gallaway with the Faith and Freedom Coalition told channel 2 that she was shocked because restaurants were inspected more frequently than abortion clinics.

Interestingly, Staci Fox, Planned Parenthood’s Southeast CEO which heads the Planned Parenthood mentioned in the report, claimed the inspections might be deceiving because of an unsubstantiated bias against them. But, this kind of excuse is simply a PR move for Planned Parenthood.

Meanwhile, Ohio’s attorney general has announced that three of the state’s Planned Parenthood clinics (Bedford Heights, Cincinnati, and Columbus) have been illegally disposing of the bodies of aborted babies by throwing them in landfills. “Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a news release. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

But, Stephanie Kight, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio
has denied the allegation telling Reuters that, “Planned Parenthood contracts with vendors to handle fetal tissue in a respectful manner and in accordance with the law”.

DeWine began the investigation to determine whether fetal tissue was selling fetal tissue, or abortion trafficking, in violation of Ohio law. Investigators requested documents and financial records from Planned Parenthood organizations as well as companies they contracted with. Although the investigation did not find that fetal tissue was sold by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio, the investigation did show that the disposal methods documented by the Planned Parenthood affiliates violate Ohio Administrative law, which requires that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.”

A press statement released Friday by the Ohio AG named the specifics:

    All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfills.
    Additionally, the Planned Parenthood facility in Bedford Heights stated it uses only one company for disposal. However, that company stated to investigators it does not accept fetal remains for disposal as a corporate policy.

13ABC Action gave additional details:

    “Planned Parenthood said some fetal tissue is donated for medical research, but such donations are illegal in Ohio. A Planned Parenthood state leader has said no donation program exists here.

    “During DeWine’s investigation of the tissue sale issue, he said his office found that Marietta, Ohio-based Accu Medical Waste Service, Inc., a waste disposal company used by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Cincinnati and Columbus, sent the remains to a Kentucky landfill.

    “An Accu Medical official told DeWine’s office that his company uses a standard treatment for biological waste called “autoclave” involving a high-pressure steam treatment to kill infectious material.

    The investigation determined that fetal remains taken by Lake Forest, Illinois-based Stericycle from a third Planned Parenthood affiliate, in Bedford Heights in suburban Cleveland, ended up in a different landfill. DeWine’s office didn’t identify that landfill.

    “Kight referred questions on disposal to the companies. A man who answered the phone at Accu Medical Waste Service who wouldn’t give his name said all employees had been instructed not to comment.

    Stericycle said in a statement it has a long-standing policy against accepting fetal remains. DeWine’s office said Planned Parenthood uses the company to dispose of its biological waste including aborted fetuses.”

DeWine said that he has referred his investigative findings to the Ohio Department of Health for further action.

Planned Parenthood’s abortion market is 40% says doc who pitched dangerous clinic to buyers of baby parts

Center for medical progress

A Planned Parenthood doctor has admitted they have 40% of the abortion market and has recommended a notorious abortion clinic to buyers of aborted baby baby parts.

Today Life Dynamics published a blog revealing a shocking investigation which exposes Planned Parenthood’s selling of aborted baby body parts.

But, Planned Parenthood may not be alone in this grisly business of chopping up the babies they kill through abortion.

In fact, in the full video footage uploaded by the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola suggests to “actors” posing as buyers from a human biologics company that they should inquire with other abortion chains.

The Planned Parenthood worker then suggests the Family Planning Associates (FPA) which has locations around California.

She also states that she has 67 Planned Parenthood affiliates which could offer fetal tissue specimens to a variety of research organizations.

In discussing the prices, abortionist Nucatola said baby parts average between $32.00 to $100.00. (6:57)

“You know, I’m going to throw a number out. I would say, it’s probably anywhere from $32 to $100.00 depending on the facility and what the space involved. It just has to do with space issues, are you sending someone there that’s going to be doing everything, or is there staff that could be doing it. What exactly are they going to be doing? Is there shipping involved? Or is some one coming to pick it up?”

“So, you know, I think, everybody just wants it to – it’s really just about – if anyone were to ask them well what do you do for this $60.00? How could you justify that? Or are yo basically just doing something completely egregious?”

“So, it just needs to be justifiable.”

The investigative “actors” ask for locations that are “local” and will do abortions into the second trimester. (10:30)

“We have some affiliates that use Digoxin and or some other feticide…So, in general you’re probably going to be able to get to 20 weeks. It’s going to be very unusual to get a patient that’s above 20 weeks, I would say at the Planned Parenthood’s in California,” Nucatola says.

She does state that older babies are usually available from New York facilities.

The other thing, have you been speaking with Family Planning Associates at all in California?” (12:30)

Nucatola specifies that Planned Parenthood’s Orange Count and LA affiliates are already working with someone else.

Which is why I think Family Planning Associates [FPA] is an option because, I mean they go all the way to Bakersfield all the way as far as Orange County. You have a pretty broad range. They definitely go to 18 weeks…” she states. (14:20)

FPA, formerly the Family Planning Associates Medical Group, has had numerous abortion injuries which have been documented by pro-life counselors outside their facilities.

Nucatola said that offering the aborted baby parts to researchers helps the abortion clinics because, according to the abortionist, patients are requesting it.

Patients will call and make an appointment and say I’d really like to donate my tissue…In general, in health care, a provider isn’t going to begin to offer a service until there is a demand. And, there is a demand.” (54:00)

Women know that this is something that they can do,” the Planned Parenthood doctor states.

She then suggests that the “actors” spend their money getting women to want to donate the fetal tissue.

The other reason affiliates see this as a good thing is – it’s just less tissue that they need to worry about,” she states. (56:30)

“There are issues with disposable fetal tissue. Probably the biggest company that does this in the country is Stericycle. Anti-choice groups got the names and the addresses of the board of directors…But, that has raised an issue,” she said.

After a back and forth about the expense of disposing of both pathological and biological waste the conversation turns back to FPA and the market share Planned Parenthood holds in the industry.

“I’m telling you, Family Planning Associates? They may go for the money. Uh, private providers…they are definitely private clinics and that’s why exhibiting at NAF is great…Depends on the market. Most markets their volume is not to be compared to Planned Parenthood’s volume. We have 40% of the market in the whole country. Not that we’re trying to – we just do. ” she says. (1:05:11)

Company that hauls aborted babies contracted to remove Ebola contaminates

Posted in Stericycle with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2014 by saynsumthn

Ironically, the same company which picks up aborted children from abortion clinics has been granted the contract to transport the Ebola contaminated materials for incineration from an apartment in Dallas, Texas where Ebola patient, Thomas Duncan, stayed.

According to NBC Dallas affiliate, a hazardous-materials crew on Friday decontaminated the Texas apartment where an Ebola patient was staying when he got sick and hours later, the family that was living in the apartment was moved to a private residence in a gated community that was offered by a volunteer.

The U.S. Department of Transportation on Friday approved a special permit permitting a Lake Forest, Illinois-based company to transport large quantities of Ebola-contaminated waste from a Dallas hospital for disposal.

The report was on some of the local Dallas news stations including NBC 5.

Here the anchor holds up copies of the Stericycle permit issued by TX Dot:

The permit covers all waste within the state of Texas, in case another diagnosed case presents in the state. Special permits, the DOT says, “are issued to individual companies to ensure that each holder is fit to conduct the activity authorized. Stericycle, Inc. The permit largely sets the standards by which the company must package and transport the materials.

The permit grants Stericycle two options for packaging, each consisting of a series of inner and outer packaging and the use of CDC-authorized disinfectant.

Stericycle is not without controversy. For years, pro-life groups have criticized the company for their collaboration to remove aborted babies from abortion and Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide.

In April, an Oregon company came under criticism after it was discovered that they may have been using aborted babies provided by Stericycle to fuel their waste-to-energy plant.

Oregon county commission ordered Covanta Marion, Inc., a Marion County waste-to-fuel incinerator to stop accepting boxed medical waste to generate electricity after learning the waste it’s been burning may include tissue from aborted fetuses from British Columbia.

The pro-life group, Repent America has tracked the abortion / Stericycle connection and has called for a boycott of the company.

Dallas officials have said that Stericycle will move the contaminated waste but Stop Stericycle warns that in 2011, Stericycle was fined over $42,000 and found to be illegally dumping aborted babies into a municipal landfill in Austin with household and commercial garbage.

In addition, the group has accused stericycle of mishandling hazardous waste from abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors Abortion Clinic in Philadelphia, Pa.

Gosnell was found guilty of several counts of murder for snipping the necks of babies after birth at his abortion clinic. Health officials found scores of hazardous materials stored at the clinic.

On the group’s website the accusations against Stericycle read, “after requesting that the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) investigate Stericycle’s unlawful incineration of late-term and newborn babies killed by Gosnell, it was discovered through CSS’ own investigation that the bodies of the children never made it to the incineration plant. Instead, according to documentation, the boxes were mislabeled and sent to Stericycle’s chemclave plant in Morgantown, Pennsylvania. Chemclave is a sterilization process involving alcohols, ketones, formaldehyde and water.

“After the babies were treated in this chemical solution, they were hauled to an area landfill and buried with the trash, which is illegal in Pennsylvania”.

Just like the Nazis: ‘Sick beyond words that businesses make money from collecting murdered children’

Protesters launch campaign to expose abortion ‘profiteers’

A Christian organization with the politically incorrect name Repent America has launched a campaign that chief Michael Marcavage says could be the one to bring the abortion industry in the United States to its knees.

How?

Expose those companies that are making money off the abortion of unborn children by supplying abortion entities such as Planned Parenthood with services.

In the spotlight in the campaign is Stericyle, which RA reports is a major contractor hauling away the “medical waste,” or the bodies of aborted infants.

Of course in the news in recent days has been the horrific case of jailed Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who along with his wife and eight other suspects was named in an indictment for the deaths of eight – one mother and seven infants.

The indictment includes photographs of the horrors investigators found, including pickled feet in jars, bodies of babies frozen in a cooler and bags of “waste” piled in the basement.

Most abortion clinics, however, would not be able to convince women to experience such conditions to obtain abortions and Marcavage told WND part of the impetus behind the campaign is to pressure suppliers into halting their services.

“There’s no question. The reality of the situation is if we can cut off their ability to do abortions, the whole industry would collapse,” he said in a recent interview.

“It is sick beyond words that businesses like Stericycle are profiting from collecting murdered children and incinerating their bodies with the trash. What’s more is the abominable child killing that has been tolerated in our nation for 38 years,” Marcavage said.

“While many have focused their efforts on overturning Roe v. Wade by putting their trust in corrupt judicial systems and politicians, they have neglected the necessity of pursuing those that enable abortion mills to operate in the first place,” he added. “Without Stericycle and companies like it, the abortion industry would collapse.”

Contacted by WND, officials at Stericyle said they would respond with a comment on the campaign, but later did not return calls.

Repent America is centering its campaign around a Campaign to Stop Stericycle website, which includes information about the campaign, the information on “blood money profiteers” and evidence, including recordings that have been made with Stericycle officials confirming their work with abortion businesses.

In one, Stericycle SQ Group Account Manager Mara Villalobos, who formerly managed Stericycle’s contracts with “multiple regions of Planned Parenthood” – confirmed that Stericycle does indeed accept fetal remains.

In a recording, she explains how the fetal remains go into one box for pickup and disposal, and the other materials, such as blood-soaked towels or gloves, go into another.

She explained the detailed packaging guidelines for abortion mills, in which fetal remains are placed into red ‘soft waste’ bags, then into secondary boxes, which are labeled with ‘incinerate only’ stickers. The fetal remains are then taken to Stericycle’s incineration plant in Haw River, N.C., where they are burned into ash,” the report states.

“Stericycle, whose profits total over a billion dollars in annual income, generates a portion of their sales revenue from services provided to abortion mills. One of Stericycle’s largest clients is Planned Parenthood, which maintains a national account with the medical ‘waste’ service,” the organization reports.

“In recent years, Stericycle has acquired countless medical waste companies until it has become the premiere ‘waste’ collection service to abortion mills nationwide. Consequently, the war on abortion has consolidated to the point where stopping this one giant could deliver a gigantic blow to the abortion industry,” it said.

“Stericycle must be called to account for their willful involvement in the furtherance of the abortion holocaust,” the report said.

The campaign also outlines the trucking companies that lease vehicles to Stericycle.

“Penske Truck Leasing has now prohibited Stericycle from using their trucks to service abortion mills,” the report said. “In fact, Penske Truck Leasing president and EO Brian Hard vowed in an e-mail to the campaign, ‘We have been, and you have my word that we will continue to be, proactive in stopping Stericycle from using our trucks to service abortion clinics.'”

“We are committed to aggressively pursuing and exposing Stericycle, its officers, suppliers and investors until this Goliath stops furthering the abortion holocaust in our nation,” Marcavage said.

The website lists a number of action points for those who choose to get involved, including contacting the company, signing a petition and others.
