Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine found no evidence that Planned Parenthood is selling harvested baby body parts, but his office did learn the abortion giant was paying two companies to haul aborted babies to landfills to dump them.

The companies are Accu Medical Waste and Stericycle.

Michael Marcavage, who heads the Campaign to Stop Stericycle, says the practice is illegal in Ohio, where you cannot "inhumanely toss these children in a landfill" after a process of "sanitation."

Since the publicity, Accu Medical Waste has stopped transporting the babies for Planned Parenthood while Stericycle has not.

Planned Parenthood, meanwhile, filed a lawsuit against DeWine after he announced the allegations of dumping the fetal remains in landfills.

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood said it's asking the court to "prevent this state from this plainly political attempt to restrict women's access to safe and legal abortion," CNN reported

According to Marcavage, the abortion giant is claiming its "so-called right" to utilize these companies to "get rid of the remains of children."

Ohio law states that an aborted fetus must be desposed of in a "humane manner." 

"And the attorney general is right in saying that it is inhumane to discard human beings, made in the image of God, with the trash," Marcavage says.
