'Bullying' won't deter pro-lifers' awareness campaign

Stericycle truck outside PP clinicA waste disposal company that disposes of aborted babies for many Planned Parenthood clinics and other abortion facilities may be creating some bad PR for itself.

"Project Weak Link" – a campaign launched by the pro-life group Created Equal – urges people to contact Stericycle and ask the firm to halt the practice of picking up aborted babies and disposing of them; in Austin, Texas, the company dumps them in a garbage dump.

After the state fined Stericycle $34,000, the disposal company sued Created Equal. The pro-life organization's executive director Mark Harrington explains that a judge has refused to halt the campaign.

"... Our campaign will go forward," he tells OneNewsNow. "Stericycle's attorneys are going to amend the complaint – [and] they have two weeks to do that. So the lawsuit is not over, but the campaign to expose Stericycle as Planned Parenthood's main waste disposal or hauling company continues."

Harrington emphasizes that his organization will not be bullied by the lawsuit into halting the campaign to expose Stericyle's association with abortion businesses.

"Unfortunately they're more interested in doing the dirty work for Planned Parenthood than they are protecting their image as a respectable waste disposal company," says Harrington. "So this lawsuit simply will possibly even give ... more exposure to their involvement with Planned Parenthood's killing business."

Created Equal is represented by the Chicago-based Thomas More Society.
