Portland Boots Teacher for Countering Abortionist

Highly-skilled, experienced math and computer science teacher Bill Diss has been notified by administrators of his dismissal for "unprofessional, intimidating and/or harassing behavior," but fellow teachers and students alike know that Diss became persona non grata because of his Catholic beliefs and opposition to the ObamaCare-funded Planned Parenthood sex indoctrination "Teen Outreach Program."
“It’s much more important for them to have Planned Parenthood in the schools than to have a really dedicated teacher . . .”

-- From "Portland teacher: Abortion stance led to removal" by Pat Dooris, KGW-TV8 (Portland, OR) 3/22/13

The teacher said earlier this year he kept two Planned Parenthood workers out of his class because they lacked proper identification. They were apparently in the building as part of an optional class on sex education.

Diss is convinced that led to his ouster.

“I certainly fight Planned Parenthood, which I certainly have a right to do. And that was all on the outside, until this year when they brought Planned Parenthood in there,” said Diss.

Diss said he has done nothing wrong and will fight to keep his job [through his teachers union, with counsel].

From "Benson High teacher's Planned Parenthood opposition caused district action against him, he claims" by Nicole Dungca, The Oregonian 3/21/13

[Diss] said the district has suspended him twice this year. He was given notice in March about the district's plan to recommend against his contract's renewal for the 2014-15 school year.

District spokeswoman Erin Hoover Barnett confirmed [Diss] was on leave but said she could not discuss specifics about the personnel matter.

The district offers students at several high schools the option of joining the Teen Outreach Program, meant to prevent teenage pregnancy, drug use and dropouts.

Planned Parenthood is the local partner of the teen program, funded in the district by a federal Department of Health and Human Services grant [ObamaCare].

From "Teacher faces firing for opposing Planned Parenthood" by Garth Kant, World Net Daily 3/25/13

[In 2012,] Diss says he was told to expect officials from the Teen Outreach Program to come to his classroom, but when they instead showed him credentials from Planned Parenthood he asked them leave. Minutes later, they returned with the principal, who remove Diss from the classroom.

He was forced to attend the Planned Parenthood presentation the next day.

“They were extremely aggressive in obtaining the children’s signatures by promising them all sorts of gifts and cash,” Diss said. Planned Parenthood went on to file a formal complaint against Diss with the school.

Diss said, ever since then, the school has been questioning his teaching skills and methods, and he has been required to attend numerous hearings.

From "Teacher, a pro-life advocate, put on leave" by Ed Langlois, Staff Writer, Catholic Sentinel 3/22/13

Officials from Portland Public Schools walked into Bill Diss’ classroom last week and told the veteran math and computer science teacher he’d been placed on administrative leave while district Superintendent Carole Smith ponders a recommendation that he be fired.

Diss, a pro-life leader and advocate for teen sexual abstinence, was escorted peacefully off the Benson High School campus by a police officer.

Diss’ employee evaluations from Benson show steady improvement and regard from when he started in 2002 through ‘07. It was only in 2008, after he began speaking publicly about Planned Parenthood, that the official assessments turned negative. After a lot of work, he was able to get the 2008-’09 evaluation removed from his file because of innaccuracies.

His 2012/‘13 evaluation has been the most critical, claiming he has little knowledge of the age group and the impact of race and culture. Diss counters, saying that the top two students in his challenging computer science class this year were Hispanic and Black young women.

From "Portland School District Boots Teacher Fighting Planned Parenthood" by Rita Diller, LifeNews.com 3/21/13

Planned Parenthood has been in pursuit of Mr. Diss since 2007 when he began organizing efforts to stop Planned Parenthood. A STOPP press release from February of 2009 noted that Planned Parenthood of Columbia Willamette wanted Bill Diss’ teaching license revoked. The press release quoted American Life League’s Jim Sedlak: “Bill has organized one of the most effective efforts against Planned Parenthood in the country. It’s no surprise Planned Parenthood will resort to anything—even going after his teaching license—in order to silence him.”

Bill was opposing, on his own time, outside of any school activities, the construction of a Planned Parenthood killing center in an African American neighborhood in Portland. The Planned Parenthood business was eventually built, and today targets minority women for abortions.

Planned Parenthood was unsuccessful in its revocation bid but, incredibly, a decree came from the school district that Bill could not indicate that he was a teacher at Benson or that he taught for the Portland schools when he was giving talks outside the school.

Things really started heating up again at the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year . . .
