Ohio AG: Aborted Babies from Planned Parenthood ‘Steam-Cooked,’ Burned and Thrown Into Garbage Dump

Stericycle DenverCOLUMBUS, Ohio — Aborted babies from three Planned Parenthood locations in Ohio were either “steam-cooked” or incinerated and then sent to landfills, the pro-life state attorney general announced on Friday.

“Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a statement. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

DeWine’s office had been investigating whether Planned Parenthood facilities in the state were selling the body parts of aborted babies following the release of national undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress.

While determining that aborted babies in Ohio weren’t being sold to research, DeWine’s Charitable Law Section rather found that the children were being picked up by medical waste companies and either steam treated or incinerated and then dumped into a landfill with household and commercial trash.

“I think it will come as a shock to Ohioans to find out that fetuses are being cooked and then they’re being put in a landfill and they’re going to be mixed in with yesterday’s garbage,” DeWine told reporters on Friday.

He said that the practice is illegal as it violates Chapter 3701-47-05 of the Ohio abortion law, which states that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.”

Accu Medical Waste Service, Inc. in Marietta had been serving the Cincinnati and Columbus Planned Parenthood locations, and had transported the containers of aborted babies to its steam plant where they were autoclaved and then trucked to a landfill in Kentucky.

The medical waste giant Stericycle, which serves the Bedford Heights Planned Parenthood, had been picking up aborted babies from the location and either having them steamed or incinerated, depending on how Planned Parenthood had marked the boxes. The fetal remains were then trucked to Republic Services Carbon Limestone Landfill in Lowellville after being treated.

Corporate representatives of Stericycle had claimed to DeWine’s office during the investigation that the company does not accept fetal remains for disposal. Stericycle currently operates an incineration plant in Warren, where “pathological waste” is burned. According to the Campaign to Stop Stericycle, the company had been fined in 2011 for illegally dumping aborted babies in a landfill in Austin, Texas, and had also been found to be disposing of the babies murdered at Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia “House of Horrors.”

While DeWine didn’t wish to outline which method of disposal would be acceptable since he is completely opposed to abortion, he did cite to reporters that burial or cremation were more humane methods. He said that his office plans to file for an injunction in court to require that Planned Parenthood cease disposing of aborted babies in autoclaves, incineration plants and landfills.

“I believe that abortion is morally reprehensible. We have an obligation to protect the most vulnerable members of our society — born and unborn — and to protect and respect the sanctity of all human life,” DeWine said in 2010 while running for office.

Planned Parenthood is defending its actions, as it asserts that the aborted babies are sent to “respectful facilities.”

“I think they’re being properly disposed of,” Stephanie Kight, president of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, told reporters. “That’s what my contract [with the removal companies] says. That’s what they’ve assured us of.”

She called DeWine’s investigation part of a “political agenda” to end abortion.

“Let’s be clear. This is about one thing: banning access to safe, legal abortion,” Kight said.

Accu Medical President Jim Parks says that the company has since stopped serving abortion facilities due to media attention over the matter. Stericycle is refusing to speak to reporters.

Republic Services President Don Slager could not be reached. Heath Eddlebute, the company’s vice president of operations, did not return a call for comment.

    All in a day’s work at Planned Murder in Da Hood.

    I wonder what it would take – with all of the information out there – videos and pictures and descriptions by abortionists, testimony, etc, and now this – for a pro-abort to convert to pro-life at this point? Basic science and logic did it for me, long before the internet became public and while I was still an atheist. But, with all of the visuals, with the womb with a view (ultrasound), a person has to be really beyond a moral monster to remain on the side of abortion “rights.” Either that, or he must be unbelievably selfish to place his sex without consequences ahead of the life of an innocent human being with intrinsic moral value.

      At this point WGC, I believe they’ve decided to remain evil.

      • WorldGoneCrazy

        “Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.” — Romans 1:28-31

        • Becky

          Amen.

      • WorldGoneCrazy

        You know, Becky, one of the things that astonished me when I became a Christian was the explanatory power and scope of the Bible. It has an answer for all of my sins and an explanation for why man sins in so many different ways – and the power in these explanations is incredible and so useful for our daily practical lives.

        • Valri

          So, when you were an atheist then, you were a lot more reasonable as a human being, correct?

        • Becky

          “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Ps 119:105

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Amen – great verse – says it all – thanks, Becky!

          • Becky

            It’s God’s word and my pleasure : )

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Excellent! How about these?

            “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

            “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” John 17:17

            “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

            “And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.” 1 Corinthians 2:13

            “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;” Psalm 19:7

            Not only does the Bible have everything we need for practical living in this fallen word, but it even reminds of this fact – amazing! Surely this is the Word of the Lord!

          • Becky

            I love those verses, WGC…they take my breath away.

    • Valri

      I suspect you were a more reasonable human being when you were an atheist.

    With revelations like that makes one wonder if soon they will turn to practicing cannabalism.

      With the amount of items they’re putting embryonic stem cells into, we may be even closer than you think…

  • Sunflowergirlntx

    Babies? I thought they were only blobs of unrecognizable TISSUE?

  • BarkingDawg

    Next the Ohio AG should go after barbershops. Human tissue is routinely hacked off with razors and scissors and callously swept up off the floor and into the garbage.

    • Nidalap

      Well, the barbers HAVE to do it that way now, you see. They stopped letting them sell the hair clippings for a profit and they can’t even use them anymore for experimentation! (^_^)

    • WorldGoneCrazy

      When barbers in Ohio start stabbing babies with scissors, and then sweeping them into the trash, you can be sure that the Ohio AG will go after them.

      I am glad you brought up scissors, though, because there are several types of them used in abortions (just take the spaces out):

      You’re welcome. Now, rejoice and be glad that you will not be forced into eternity with people who do not share your love for baby sacrifice.

      • BarkingDawg

        Fetuses are not babies.

        • Nidalap

          …and babies are not toddlers, toddlers are not preteens, preteens are not teenagers…

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Well, you take care of that nonsense rather quickly, Nidalap! Here I had to go to all of the secular medical sources that refer to fetuses as babies, but you just took care of it in one sentence phrase. Nicely done!

          • Nidalap

            You are most kind. I fear that neither your list of learned sources, nor my appeal to baseline common sense will carry the day here. The human soul recognizes truth, but is compelled by external forces to deny it. Pray for their illumination. 🙂

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Can you imagine what a hardened heart it takes to still stand up for abortion on a story like this one?!? Mind boggling!

        • WorldGoneCrazy

          I’m actually surprised that you responded after making such a fool of yourself with the “scissors” comment. I’m also surprised you remain in favor of abortion “rights” after viewing that video. So, I will just let someone else handle your nonsensical comment – since you came back with more foolishness:

          “If you can either call or email these guys to let them know that “they’re so obsessed with fetuses to the point of calling them
          babies”, I’ll consider becoming a pro abort like you:

          http://www .webmd .com/baby/ss/s…

          http://americanpregnancy .org/w…

          et al, to let them know that if they don’t stop referring to a fetus as an
          “imaginary” baby, they’ll be seriously making you look silly.

          *Be sure to contact all the obgyn’s who do the same. I know my OB always referred to my babies when they were in the womb, as babies. Please let all these doctors know that they are “obsessed with fetuses to the point of calling them babies”.” — PJ4

          God bless!

          Yes they are!!!

  • afchief

    There is nothing that makes more angry then abortion. It is MURDER!!! It is satan at his worst. It is pure evil.

    People who support PP and Democrats are tools of satan.

    “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” (John 8:44,45)

  • jael2

    The actual government sanctioned murder of these little boys and girls is the real issue. While it’s disgusting and inhumane what is done with these babies remains, it’s diabolical that these murders are permitted to take place day after day with little outcry; especially from the pastors.
    And since we refuse to protect the most innocent amongst us, we shouldn’t be shocked when a mass shooting takes place. At this point in America’s history, everyone is expendable.
    God help us!
