On Thursday, September 8th, supporters of the Campaign to Stop Stericycle (CSS), Missionaries to the Preborn
and Faithful Soldier School of Evangelism
, picketed the Idealease Annual Meeting of Affiliates at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Chicago for the company's provision of trucks to Stericycle to service the abortion industry. Affiliates and members of the general public were confronted with the reality of abortion through signs and two truth trucks that encircled the hotel, and were provided with literature exhorting Idealease to stop facilitating Stericycle's collaboration in the abortion holocaust. Idealease is currently the top supplier of trucks to Stericycle, which is the nation's leading medical waste company and premiere "waste" service to the abortion industry.

Public resistance is growing against Idealease and its affiliates as locals protested this month outside of affiliate McCandless Truck Center in Aurora, Colorado. Stericycle currently uses a McCandless truck to service the second largest Planned Parenthood facility in the nation. In July, Life and Liberty Ministries picketed an Idealease affiliate in Richmond, Virginia after learning that it had been presented with a contract from Stericycle to replace a Ryder truck that had been servicing the Richmond Medical Center for Women. During the Richmond picket, the attorney for the affiliate called CSS to state that management would not be signing the contract.
Concerned citizens across the country are also calling and writing the Idealease corporate office and its affiliate locations nationwide to urge the company to follow the lead of Penske and Ryder by prohibiting Stericycle from using its trucks to service the abortion industry.
A CALL TO ACTION:
CSS exhorts individuals across the country to continue to take action in the following ways: 1)
Call and/or write Idealease, Inc. and politely, but firmly, express your deep disgust at the company's partnership with Stericycle as it pertains to servicing the abortion industry.

"I am extremely disturbed that your company continues to allow Stericycle to use your trucks to collect the remains of aborted children and the tools used to kill them. Please follow the lead of Penske and Ryder, and stop Stericycle from using your vehicles to assist those that destroy innocent life by immediately removing your trucks from all routes that service abortion facilities." 2) Click here
