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.

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”.

Remembering aborted babies found in Florida on this National Day of Remembrance for aborted Children

In 1991, pro-lifers in South Florida found aborted children being discarded by a local abortion clinic in their trash dumpster.

Livingston Storynoname

The aborted children were thrown in various garbage bags and placed in the dumpster in a strip plaza where anyone could locate them. In addition to the children thrown away, the medical records of the women who had the abortions were also discarded.

AbBabyCanister

Most of the babies were first trimester suction abortions. The babies were ground into meat like chunks many not identifiable, but some limbs remained in tack.

Pro-lifers did not report their findings to authorities in 1991 because the atmosphere at the time was hostile to their cause but in 1992, Carlos Ricoarango, owner of the Cuban Cafe, a business neighboring abortionist Robert Livingston said he became suspicious when he saw abortionist Livingston throwing away plastic bags late at night.

The next day, Ricoarango looked in the garbage and found 11 containers of medical waste. A Palm Beach County Sheriff`s Office investigation concluded the medical waste was human blood and a gauze that contained minute pieces of human fetal tissue. The investigation also said the gauze is used as part of an abortion process. Livingston was cleared in those charges as he was successful in convincing authorities that the “medical waste” found in his trash dumpster was somehow planted by pro-lifers.

The abortionist, Robert Livingston made the front page of The New Jersey Record twice in August 1972 when he and another doctor were indicted after performing illegal abortions.

Livingston was indicted in August 1972 along with another doctor, Bernard Greenspan of Paterson. But the charges were dropped six months later, after the January 1973 Roe v. Wade decision overturned all state laws prohibiting abortion and limited state regulation to the period late in a pregnancy when a fetus can survive outside the womb.

In 1975 a grand jury investigated that he illegally arranging the adoption of unwanted babies that he delivers.

Livingston opened a clinic in Englewood, Metropolitan Medical Associates, which he operated along with an obstetrics practice and a fertility clinic until he moved to Florida in 1980. Metropolitan Medical still operates under different ownership.

Livingston said he never questioned the morality of the procedure. Medically, he said he considered the amount of tissue extracted during an early-term abortion to be equivalent to a scab.

Now, years later, times have changed.

According to The Record, Livingston, once a lightning rod in the North Jersey abortion debate, now avoids telling anyone about his role in that chapter of American history, even though he strongly maintains his belief that abortions ought to be legal. The issue, he says, has become so emotionally charged that he no longer feels comfortable talking about it — not to the colleagues of his grown children and not to the residents of what he described as a conservative retirement community where he now lives.

“I would be afraid,” he said, adding that he believes the stigma of being an abortion doctor is greater than it was in the 1960s, when it was illegal to perform the procedure. “The atmosphere is so ominous now. I wouldn’t know where to begin.”

FL License Suspended

Livingston’s license has been suspended since 2007 when he tried to return to his practice without completing a treatment and evaluation program, in violation of a contract he had made with the Board of Medicine, according to Florida Department of Health documents.

He had agreed to complete the program after he overdosed on opiates he was taking for chronic pain, the documents show.

Pro-lifers held a Memorial Service for the children killed at the abortion clinic. Many came by to grieve their deaths.

Whole Women’s Health abortion clinic in Texas accused of wrong doing by pro-life group

A McAllen abortion clinic is under fire. A private company claims they found hundreds of patients’ documents and waste thrown in a dumpster.

The identities of patients at a health clinic in McAllen may be at risk. An anti-abortion group says they found the trash and documents in a dumpster near Whole Women’s Health of McAllen. It’s now in the hands of the attorney general and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Below is a report from the Pro-life Group: Operation Rescue:

TX Abortion Clinic Under Media Microscope After Revelation of Abortion Abuses
• Written by Operation Rescue
• Posted March 9, 2011 at 12:51 am

Austin, TX – A McAllen, Texas abortion clinic that was the subject of a three month investigation by Operation Rescue and the Survivors is denying any wrong doing and is clearly in damage-control mode after a local television interview. However, a reporter from KRVG Channel 5 in the Rio Grande Valley was unable to verify the clinic’s claims that the Health Department has cleared them.

Last week Operation Rescue released information documenting widespread abortion abuses at a dozen Texas abortion clinics. Among the worst offenders was Whole Women’s Health, which operates five abortion clinics in Texas. The McAllen office discoveries were particularly disturbing. Dumped in the trash were the bloody refuse of several abortions along with the names of patients and other private information. (View photo documentation of the evidence with the name Whole Women’s Health clearly evident.)
Tuesday evening, KRVG ran the story that showed the reporter digging through the trash and questioning a clinic official.

“Certainly, this abortion clinic will have modified their behavior because they have been caught red-handed,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We have not been notified by the Health Department of the outcome of our first complaint. We are still processing some of the information from our investigation, and have filed additional complaints with the health department. More will be coming. We are also preparing complaints that we plan to lodge with the medical board next week. This is far from over.”

Patient logs (click here to view) and other records were discovered on Whole Women’s Health forms and the bloody remains of abortions came in bags with other documents bearing Whole Women’s Health’s name. Operation Rescue has made examples of this evidence public.

In another development, Youtube.com pulled the short video that showed evidence of abortion abuses along with recordings of phone conference calls that violated the 24 hour waiting period and informed consent laws. The video was put on Vimeo.com, which also yanked the video Monday afternoon. Operation Rescue has protested the blocking of the video as censorship. The video is now available on Pro-LifeTube.com and is embedded in the original online report at OperationRescue.org.

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

Protesters launch campaign to expose abortion ‘profiteers’

Stericycle picking up abortion clinic waste (Repent America photo)
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.

Safe abortions? Another abortion clinic closed for health code violations

27-Year-Old Abortion Facility Closed Down Over Health Code Violations

By James Tillman

MONTGOMERY, Alabama, June 11, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) — The Montgomery, Alabama location for the Summit Medical Centers chain of abortion mills has closed after the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) produced a 68-page long document detailing numerous violations of state law and of medical standards.

The center had been operating on a probationary license since October 2006 due to the legal and health deficiencies found on a 2006 survey.

Among medical deficiencies, the ADPH document notes failure to inspect medical equipment annually, failure to wash hands and medical equipment in accord with the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control, failure to provide for infection control in the recovery room, failure to provide a sufficient number of staff to care for patients in the recovery room, failure to keep adequate medical records, and failure to ensure the availability of emergency drugs and oxygen for use by authorized employees.

Furthermore, expired medications were not removed from the clinic, calls from patients with potential medical conditions were not returned in a timely fashion, and medical waste was not disposed of correctly but instead given to normal trash collectors.

Such gross negligence resembles the unsanitary conditions that have been found in other abortion mills, such as the New Jersey abortion center where forceps crusted with “blood-like residue” were found and rusted crochet hooks were used to remove IUDs. Similarly unsanitary disposal of medical waste has been exposed in a Philadelphia abortuary.

Aside from such serious medical failures, the clinic also failed to follow various laws designed to bring about informed consent and protect minors from abuse.

The ADPH document notes that the clinic failed to develop policies in accord with state law regarding parental consent, suspected abuse, or neglect of a minor, that it failed to inform a woman of her right to view an educational videotape as part of the counseling process, and that it failed to observe the 24-hour waiting period required before abortions.

Such problems are typical of abortion clinics across the country; the Mona Lisa project run by Live Action has found multiple cases in which clinics failed to report apparent cases of statutory rape.

Other abortion clinics run by Summit Medical Centers have had similar problems of gross incompetence. In 2006 one such center had its license suspended after a nurse gave a woman an ultrasound and concluded that the woman was only six weeks pregnant when she was actually in the third trimester. The nurse gave the woman the abortion drug RU 486, which resulted in the woman’s visit to the hospital six days later with the baby’s head protruding before delivering the dead six and one-quarter pound child.

This newly-closed clinic is the last of the Summit clinics to operate in Alabama. The website of the clinic now directs patients on a “short 2.5 hour drive” to Summit Medical Associates in Atlanta, Georgia.

Baby Almost Cremated Alive : Aborted baby cries before cremation

Baby Almost Cremated Alive: Where the Road of Abortion Leads
• By Jennifer Hartline
• 5/25/2010
• Catholic Online (www.catholic.org)
WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) – Sometimes there just isn’t an adequate adjective.

What is the word to describe a baby, aborted at 7 months, being placed in a box with cotton wool stuffed in his mouth and sent to the furnace of a crematory — alive?

Horrifying? Not even close. Shocking? A paltry description. What is the word?

Evil. Depraved. Malevolent. Wicked. Those words are a good fit. This unspeakable evil took place in China’s Guangdong Province. Just as this baby was about to be thrown into the fire, the mortuary worker heard him cry. The worker was startled by the sound and stopped to open the box and discovered the baby moving, choking on the cotton stuffed in his mouth. The worker cleared his mouth and the baby breathed peacefully.

The child was rushed back to the hospital from whence he’d come earlier that day labeled as medical waste. But doctors there refused to treat him. They left him in the lobby. They confirmed hours later that he was dead (they made sure this time) and sent him right back to the funeral home to be cremated.

Those who champion abortion will say that narratives like mine here are full of exaggeration, inflammatory language and highly-charged, emotional terms. But tell me, please, how can we adequately describe the nefarious act of discarding a human being like garbage sent to the furnace?

How is it inflammatory to describe the medical “procedure” whereby a baby is stabbed at the base of the skull, her brains literally sucked out of her head, her skull crushed and then removed from the birth canal? Or the process by which she is burned with chemicals, dismembered with forceps, stabbed in the heart with a lethal injection, or forcefully sucked out of the womb?

Those are simply the facts. It sounds inflammatory only to those who are liars and killers.

The language of liars and killers is far more ambiguous. Words like “choice”, “rights”, and “reproductive health” have an empowering and clinical ring to them, while they hypnotize a self-centered, hedonistic culture. “Fetus” is uttered callously as though it means something less than a human being. To the liars and killers, this is their vernacular, and it is persuasive and deceiving.

The heartless destruction of our children is monstrous, and those who accomplish it forfeit their humanity piece by piece. A human being has an innate instinct toward compassion, toward basic kindness unless that instinct is smothered by hate. No one kills babies out of love. A person only ignores a helpless, dying baby, as the doctors in China ignored that beloved child, because he has surrendered his heart to hate and death. A person rips a baby out of the womb and inflicts death only because he himself has surrendered to the spirit of death.

There are no other ends on the road of abortion; only hate, death and the utter loss of the soul.

To the advocates and administers of abortion in America, I dare you – defend the death of this Chinese baby. Explain the correctness of his murder; justify his torture. You must. It cannot matter at all to you where, when or how this baby died. All that matters is that he is dead, finally. The means to the end are irrelevant, if “choice” is sacrosanct. You already demand the right to dismember, burn, stab, suction and decapitate “it.” You must now go the next step and demand the right to use whatever means necessary to achieve the objective of death, whether in or out of the womb.

The time has come to admit what you’re really saying, what you’re really demanding – the right to violently extinguish another human being simply because you wish it. Your rhetoric may sound clever to you, with all its vague and generic descriptions of the baby in the womb, but the truth is never disguised, and every human heart not already atrophied by hate and death knows the truth. Abortion does not terminate a pregnancy. Abortion terminates the baby.

You are not heroes of choice or bodily autonomy or freedom or women’s rights. You are cheerleaders for and distributors of death. You are pirates who plunder the womb and profit from the killing of children.

Basic human decency and compassion demanded that those Chinese doctors help to save that poor baby’s life. But to the abortion militia, compassion and decency are smote by their mythical yet inviolate “right to choose.”

America, listen up. What happened in China is the only and inevitable destination of our country as long as we embrace the evil of abortion. In fact, we know for certain that we are already arriving at that destination. Babies who have the audacity to survive their abortion in this country are left alone on instrument tables to die, or thrown away like trash. Our Born Alive Infant Protection Act (how can such an act of legislation even be needed?!?) is ignored and unenforced. Don’t think it doesn’t happen in America.

It is inevitable that more and more babies will be thrown away, having survived their murder attempt, and left to die, or put in boxes and shoved into the furnace. There is only one objective to the cause of abortion: death. Once a taste for death has been acquired, it is never satisfied. It demands more blood, and more blood, and it is never enough. There is always another restriction to be lifted, another speed bump to level so that the road of “choice” is fast, unobstructed and easily traveled.

We are living in our own age of ongoing death camps, complete with furnaces where the unwanted, the imperfect, the sick, the powerless, the silent ones go to be eliminated.

There is only one cure and His name is Jesus. His innocent blood was shed to forgive the sins of every soul, even the depraved sin of abortion. There is mercy for us, America, if we will choose life. There is prosperity and healing and happiness and abundant grace for us if we will turn away from our sin and seek His face.

If we do not summon the courage to admit what we have done, what we continue to do, if we do not beg God’s mercy, the road we are on will surely lead to destruction. The only question is, what will it take to change our course?

Aborted baby cries before cremation
Created: 2010-5-14 16:41:48
Author:Wang Xiang

AN aborted baby declared dead by doctors in south China’s Guangdong Province cried before he was due to be cremated, but died hours later as doctors refused to treat him.

A mortuary worker at Nanhai Funeral Home in Foshan City said the baby cried and scared him as he was about to throw the coffin into a furnace, Information Times reported today.

He opened the box and found the seven-month fetus moving, but apparently choking on some cotton wool in his mouth, the report said.

After the worker cleared his mouth, the baby yawned and breathed peacefully. Workers rushed him back to Guanyao Hospital which delivered the baby as medical waste earlier that day.

But doctors left him in the lobby, and confirmed after an hour that the baby died.

The vice head of the funeral house said Guanyao Hospital sent many aborted fetuses or still-born babies for cremation. This baby apparently survived an abortion at seven months, and he had videos to prove the baby was still alive before the cremation.

Hospital official Liu Sanhong said its staff checked the baby for an hour and made sure it was dead. Liu did not say whether the doctors tried to save the baby or not.

The body was later sent back to the funeral house. The report said all workers were ordered not to talk about the incident.

On March 31, at least 21 fetuses and dead babies were found dumped in a river in east China’s Jining City.

Eight had tabs with clinic code numbers attached to their feet. The Affiliated Hospital of Jining Medical University responsible for the corpses said they were “medical waste.”

Two hospital staffers have been detained while the director and deputy director of the hospital’s logistics department were sacked. A vice president of the hospital was suspended.
