Through Project Weak Link, pro-life organization Created Equal applies pressure to waste disposal companies that collaborate with abortionists by picking up the remains of aborted babies.

Created Equal founder Mark Harrington tells OneNewsNow that the first to drop contracts with the abortion industry was Stericycle, the largest medical waste company in the world. According to Harrington, Stericycle ceased to do Planned Parenthood's dirty work in 2016 and admitted it severed contracts with over 400 abortion clinics nationwide.

The latest to stop servicing the abortion industry is Specific Waste Industries, which serviced facilities in Kentucky and the Midwest. Accu-Medical Waste Services also stopped transporting aborted baby bodies, and was subsequently purchased by Stericycle.

Harrington contends that the abortion industry is feeling pressure from the campaign.

"Well, according to Vicki Saporta, who is the CEO of the National Abortion Federation, that's exactly correct," says the pro-life leader. "She said that they're having difficulty finding companies to provide these waste services. It makes sense: most companies don't want anything to do with the abortion cartel."

The work of Project Weak Link is still under way, and Harrington anticipates the effort will result in more victories down the road.
