LAKE FOREST, Ill. — A county circuit court judge has rejected the nation’s largest medical waste provider’s request to stop a pro-life group from distributing information about the company’s disposal of aborted babies for Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities nationwide.
As part of its “Project Weak Link,” the Ohio-based group Created Equal had distributed leaflets last month in an awareness campaign surrounding the medical waste company Stericycle and its service to Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities. Created Equal distributed the information in Lake Forest, Illinois, where the corporate headquarters of Stericycle is located, as well as in the neighborhood of its president, Charles Alutto.
On March 31, Stericycle sought an injunction against Created Equal and its leader Mark Harrington, stating that the distribution of the information would hurt the company’s right to privacy and that Stericycle would “lose business, customer relationships, and customer goodwill” over the effort. It also asked that Created Equal be ordered to pay damages to the company for canvassing area homes with its awareness cards, and said that Alutto was being portrayed in a “false light.”
