AUGUSTA, Ga. — An investigation out of Georgia has confirmed that the medical waste giant Stericycle is burning the bodies of aborted babies at its North Carolina incineration plant. The mounting evidence of the ongoing operation, which has been characterized as a “modern-day Auschwitz,” further documents the corporate collaboration in the systematic annihilation of unwanted children.
The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) recently investigated a report of concern that A Preferred Women’s Health Center of Augusta could be improperly disposing of aborted babies as Stericycle is the only company picking up at the facility and it claims that does not dispose of aborted “fetuses.”
The facility is part of a chain encompassing four different locations, which are also in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina, as well as Atlanta, Georgia.
According to Steven Smith, a local Christian who seeks to reach mothers outside of the facility, Stericycle visits the abortion facility every six weeks for pickup.
Stericycle, which shows up on a regular basis at abortion facilities nationwide, had once transported aborted babies for convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell and his “House of Horrors.” Gosnell, who is now serving a life sentence for “snipping” the necks of three babies who were born alive, was convicted after he stopped paying his Stericycle bills and the babies were piling up in the freezer—evidence that otherwise would have been handed off to Stericycle for destruction, according to a grand jury report.
However, in a 2017 letter to the pro-life group Created Equal, Stericycle CEO Charles Alutto claimed that the company does not accept aborted babies due to its long-held waste acceptance policy, which prohibits medical waste generators from including “complete human remains, including heads, full torsos and fetuses” in the boxes or containers for pickup.
He added that several years prior, the company also began requiring abortion facilities to submit a “supplemental assurance” that they have another licensed provider to dispose of the “fetuses.”
“We have previously informed you and continue to maintain that Stericycle does not accept fetal remains,” Alutto wrote, pointing to the company’s waste acceptance policy.
“Beyond our policy, for women’s healthcare facilities that may provide certain procedures, we require supplemental assurances in writing that they have licensed providers for fetal remains,” he stated. “When customers are not willing to provide this certification, we do not provide services.”
Therefore, if Stericycle is not picking up the aborted babies as it adamantly claims, what is the abortion facility doing with them?
According to information posted on the EPD website, a representative with the agency drove to A Preferred Women’s Health Center to find out if the abortion facility is following state law regarding fetus disposal. It was confirmed by facility manager Paula Clark and administrator Calla Hales that Stericycle is its sole medical waste transporter.
“[Clark] stated that Stericycle does pick up all of their biomedical waste at one time about once a month,” the investigator wrote.
“Ms. Hales proceeded to give me the Stericycle customer weight report and the clinic’s waste disposal policy. Afterwards she showed me the new sharps storage, filled sharps storage, and the tissue storage. All of which are labeled ‘biohazard.’ She also provided me the customer support number for Stericycle,” she documented.
The investigator took a photograph of the exterior of the freezer where the aborted babies are stored until Stericycle arrives.
The disposal policy for the facility, which was uploaded with the investigation results, also reads, “Lab-regulated medical waste is packed for transport and placed in a freezer used exclusively for medical waste. The regulated waste remains frozen until the time of regularly scheduled pick up and transport as directed by Stericycle.”
The Stericycle weight report shows total “waste” pickup weighing 30.9, 38, 43 and 46 pounds on various pickup dates in 2018, with the latest pickup being on Jan. 24 and weighing at 27.4 pounds.
The investigator then contacted Stericycle for additional information. The office of Selin Hoboy, the vice president for regulatory affairs at Stericycle’s corporate office, submitted documentation to the EPD that showed that A Preferred Women’s Health Center’s “waste” is transported to North Carolina for incineration.
“It was confirmed that all of the biomedical waste that is picked up from the clinic is taken to a site that is an incinerator and that the facility has an air permit through the state of North Carolina,” the investigator wrote.
The incinerator referred to in the report is a plant located in Graham, North Carolina, which is referred to in documents as Haw River.
Campaign to Stop Stericycle (CSS), which has been investigating and compiling evidence since 2011 of Stericycle’s “collection, transportation and incineration of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them,” has repeatedly decried the company’s incineration of aborted babies in North Carolina and its other locations nationwide. It compares the matter to the fires of Auschwitz during the days of the Holocaust and the allied collaboration in the “mass annihilation of unwanted persons.”
“Babies who are being murdered in numerous states are continually shipped by Stericycle to the incineration chambers to be burned with other medical garbage. This vivid picture is eerily reminiscent of the Holocaust that took place in Nazi Germany when the bodies of gassed Jews were burned in ovens,” said CSS Director Michael Marcavage. “The abortion holocaust is being perpetuated around the world because of companies like Stericycle that provide the vital services to keep these modern-day death camps, called ‘abortion clinics,’ open.”
“Stericycle must stop denying that it is disposing of aborted babies for financial gain—as it is not even following its own waste acceptance policy. It is hard to believe that an international corporation that prides itself in the safe disposal of dangerous hazardous waste, and expects to be trusted in doing so, doesn’t know that its own trucks are hauling away aborted babies for incineration in violation of its own stated policy,” he added. “It is time for the medical waste giant to stop lying to its investors, customers and those who raise concerns, and sever its ties to the abortion industry once and for all.”
Marcavage noted that without the collaboration of companies like Stericycle, the abortion industry could not continue to operate and would collapse. Recalling the lack of outcry during the Jewish Holocaust, he urged Christians not to let history repeat itself by looking away or remaining silent in the face of evil.
“In a day and age where there is so much indifference and apathy among religious professors toward the ongoing abortion holocaust, which has resulted in the deaths of millions upon millions of children, the biblical commands to love thy neighbor and to be a voice for the voiceless remain clear and unavoidable,” he said. “Christians must act now and speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, as the Scriptures instruct, and they can start with a call to Stericycle’s CEO.”
Marcavage exhorts others to call Stericycle CEO Charles Alutto at (847)295-4012 and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Smith, who has been reaching women outside of the A Preferred Women’s Health Center for the past three years, told Christian News Network that he has sought to urge Stericycle’s drivers not to assist the location with the murder of the unborn.
“We exhort everyone to love their preborn neighbor and to stop servicing [the location], from the UPS driver delivering packages to the private contractor servicing the building,” he outlined.
“Stericycle has been coming regularly every six weeks to pick up the remains of the children that are murdered here. Unlike the other businesses that we exhort, there comes some serious demonic pushback whenever they are addressed,” Smith stated.
However, some have refused to service the location after realizing what they were getting into, he said.
“Several drivers in the past have sequentially refused to pick up because there consciences were pricked only to have the ‘clinicians’ run to the cab of the truck trying to beg him to come in,” Smith recalled.
He added that he has tried to reach out to the corporate office, but his words have fallen on deaf ears.
“We’ve tried on our own over the years to expose their lie of Stericycle not picking up dead children by making phone calls and writing letters directly to the company and various state agencies, but as most people do, they want to turn their heads and ignore our requests and these image bearer’s plight,” Smith lamented.
As previously reported, in 2011, the medical waste giant was fined $42,000 in Texas for dumping fetal remains from Whole Woman’s Health in Austin with household and commercial trash.
“It was explained that medical waste is placed in red biohazard bags, then placed into boxes provided by Stericycle. Each fetus resulting from an abortion is placed into a hard plastic container and then into a red biohazard bag. The bag is then placed into a freezer, where it is stored,” an investigative report from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) outlined.
“When Stericycle arrives to transport the medical waste, the individual fetuses are removed from the freezer and placed into another large red biohazard bag. The red biohazard bag containing the fetuses is placed into the medical waste box along with other medical waste generated at the facility that requires treatment,” it continued. “According to facility representatives and the medical waste manifest reviewed, it appears that Stericycle picks up the waste once per week.”
In 2015, Stericycle was likewise found to have unlawfully dumped the remains of aborted babies from Greensville Women’s Clinic in South Carolina into a landfill after steam-sterilizing the boxes, instead of incinerating them as required by law, as the medical waste boxes were not properly labeled by the abortion facility.
