Oregon School Joins Planned Parenthood to Distroy Award Winning Teacher

I saw this article on facebook and had to post it. I love kids and they deserve good teachers.

WASHINGTON, November 8, 2013 — Bill Diss is an experienced,  highly qualified and popular computer science teacher. On November 14, the  Portland school district and Planned Parenthood will try to have him declared  unfit to teach. Diss is the only teacher in Oregon to earn the distinction of being  credentialed to teach computer science for college credit at the high school  level. Diss is a highly qualified high school educator who has been  teaching for more than a decade at a desperate public school that almost closed  in 2010 — a school that serves a population which is 75 percent minority.

Diss earned special recognitions for his work with at-risk black students and  for helping to stop gang violence in Portland parks. But, because he refused to  allow Planned Parenthood into his classroom, school administrators branded him “unfit to teach” and intend to end his career with Portland Public Schools on  November 14.

Parents and students alike are thankful for his dedication. One parent  (who holds an M.Ed.) wrote, “[My daughter] found a teacher that achieved  tremendous balance between high expectations and accommodating individual  needs.” Another mother who says Diss is a gem wrote, “The highlight of [my son’s] day  however is his math class with Mr. Diss. … It seems he goes to great lengths to  make himself available for any student who needs additional help. … Mr. Diss  cares enough about his students to have firm boundaries and tell them the truth,  even when it hurts.”

And therein lies the problem: Diss is staunchly pro-life and does not hide  those views from his students.

Diss’ fight against sex industry giant Planned Parenthood on his own time is  well-known. It has raised the ire of Principal Carol Campbell and other school  administrators for years. Diss said that, on one occasion, Campbell demanded to know exactly what Diss  had said at a prayer vigil. Hearing there was video, she also wanted to see  that.

On September 17, 2012, things escalated. With Campbell’s backing, an “education team” went to Diss’ classroom to enroll students in the Health and  Human Services’ Teen Outreach Program (TOP). One of the TOP goals is to reduce  teen pregnancy. It teaches students (among other things) about premarital sex,  contraception, and abortion. Pro-life critics of the program say that TOP is just a slickly packaged  comprehensive sex education program promoted by $375 million rolled into  Obamacare. As the de facto defunding of abstinence education by the White  House progresses, TOP agents tempt parents with a $30 payment if the parents  sign a medical release giving an undefined “healthcare provider” permission to  treat the students in the absence of the parents.

When three TOP agents entered Diss’ math class, they immediately put up signs  and began offering gift certificates and cash incentives to his students to  enroll them in the program. Suspicious, Diss asked for identification. It turned  out the presenters did not work for Uncle Sam. Rather, they were employees of  Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette — the local PP that affirms  homosexuality, promotes “sex-positive celebrations,” and offers abortions.

Diss asked them to leave the classroom but, within moments, Campbell arrived  to enforce access to the students. Diss says that when he asked to be excused  for religious preference reasons, Campbell refused. In a formal letter to Principal Campbell written the following day, Bill  Snyder, security/facilities manager for PPCW, complained that Diss told students  that Planned Parenthood “was a racist organization, was involved in eugenics,  and was a provider of abortions.”

While some black leaders like Jesse Jackson would not agree, Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther  King, goes even further: “The most obvious practitioner of racism in the United  States today is Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by the eugenicist  Margaret Sanger and recently documented as ready to accept money to eliminate  black babies.”

Ryan  Bomberger, a young rising star in the black pro-life movement, echoes the  sentiment. His TooManyAborted project uses video to expose “Planned Parenthood’s  history of eugenic racism and unaltered present.”

Snyder’s memo went on to complain that Diss was overheard “telling students  in the hallway that PPCW was going to talk to them about abortion and students  were intimidated to the point that none of them signed up for the class.” Planned Parenthood records show the organization committed over 332,000  abortions last year, estimated to be one-third of its total clinic revenues. The  national abortion ratio by race is 300 percent higher for African Americans.

After that day, Diss says Planned Parenthood was allowed to monitor his class  for the next two weeks and he has been monitored almost 40 times by Campbell,  Vice Principal Jeandre Carbone, Frank Scotto of human resources, and even  Planned Parenthood management. Diss says he has been subjected to over a dozen hearings. On November 14,  2013, Portland schools will bring formal charges that Diss is unfit to teach.  The formal hearing is meant to end his career.

One of the charges brought against him includes talking about premarital sex,  sexual purity, and abortion in his math and computer science classes. Do these educators know how to spell i-r-o-n-y? While Planned Parenthood hopes to get Diss’s teaching credentials revoked,  the Portland Association of Teachers has hired lawyers to protect Diss’ First  Amendment rights.

Upon hearing of Diss’ troubles, a former student wrote the school: “Mr. Diss  has done a lot for me and my family and there is no way that we could ever repay  him. I believe that the world is in desperate need of good, honest people. If  Mr. Diss gets his teaching license revoked, then that will only take another  good source of help from the students.” The grateful former student concluded, “This is all despite the fact that he  and I have different points of view on Planned Parenthood.”

Jim Sedlak of STOPP.org, recognized as the leading national expert on Planned  Parenthood, said, “Planned Parenthood is ruthless. This is about political  power, not the truth, the children, or good teachers. They will no doubt pack  the hearing with pro-choice activists to sway the outcome.” The attorney representing Diss agrees, saying that it is imperative that  families and teachers who support his civil rights attend. She believes that  Diss is being persecuted for his religious beliefs. The hearing will be  conducted at the headquarters of Portland public schools at 501 N. Dixon Street  in Portland, Oregon, beginning at 4 p.m. on November 14.

About Kathy

I am semi retired and had lots of free time on my hands. I still work part time as a bookkeeper at the little hardware store in our small town but I still had free time to fill so I became a blogger here at The Harley Factor. I also am a compulsive beader so I started a beading blog to show off my bead work call Compulsive Beading. As I have gotten older and mostly wiser I have become very opinionated on a lot of subjects and will share them with you from time to time when I can't keep my mouth shut. Kathy Sinclair
