Planned Parenthood waging war on schoolchildren in Oregon
This article originally appeared in this issue of the WSR: 2012-09-26

Bill Diss has been under fire since 2007 from Planned Parenthood, the teachers’ union, lawyers, and school administration for his unwavering defense of children from Planned Parenthood’s aggressive efforts to steal their souls. After Planned Parenthood’s recent entrance into his classroom, the Portland teacher is once again asking for parents to take notice of what is going on in Oregon schools—and to take action.

On September 17, 2012, Planned Parenthood operatives entered Diss’ classroom where he was tutoring students in basic math skills and other subjects. They expected to be given the floor to recruit students for a Teen Outreach Program. Instead, Mr. Diss asked them to leave his classroom. They left, and a few moments later the principal and vice principal came to remove Mr. Diss from class. The next day he was forced to sit through a Planned Parenthood presentation. “They were extremely aggressive in obtaining the children’s signatures by promising them all sorts of gifts and cash,” Diss said. Planned Parenthood has filed a formal complaint against Mr. Diss with the school.

The permission form sent home with the children and obtained by STOPP doesn’t talk about the sexual content of the program, but hints at it in the fine print on the consent form, where it says that children will be escorted to off-campus activities by PPCW staff (Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette).

It speaks of surveys the child will be required to fill out that include “questions on my child’s achievement in school, school behaviors, and sexual activity. There are no known risks of physical, psychological or social harm for your child participating in the evaluation. Some of the survey items may cause some slight discomfort.” It then promises $30 if they complete the study. The form also provides for consent for Planned Parenthood to use photographs and videos of the students in future presentations and advertisements. It also contains a medical release, giving a “health care provider” permission to treat the students in the absence of the parents in order to “safeguard” the “child’s health.”

Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette is responsible for the disgusting Take Care Down There videos that have garnered national attention for their unbelievably sick and twisted sexual content. The titles of the short videos include Horse Penis Virus, Bring your sister, I didn’t spew, Hot & heavy, Let me do me, Threesome, and the Down There Song.

And who is funding Planned Parenthood’s foray into Oregon classrooms? The U.S. government, of course, with a $75 million grant each year through 2014 divided among multiple Planned Parenthood affiliates—from the good old American taxpayers. Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette was one of 15 PP affiliates across the country selected by the DHHS to receive the new grant funding as part of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention initiative.

It is imperative that Oregon parents become very vocal and visible in fighting this battle. Though he has put his livelihood on the line, Bill cannot win without parents stepping in to lead the fight.

We urge all citizens in the Portland Public Schools’ area to contact the district superintendent, Carole Smith, as well as the school board, and ask them to protect the children of the district from any further contact with Planned Parenthood. Ms. Smith can be contacted at 503-916-2000. The school board can be reached through Kathryn Sofich, board office, 503-916-3904, or via e-mail at ksofich@pps.net. We also ask pro-lifers across the country to pray for Bill Diss and his family.
