Washington, D.C. (26 February 2009) – An Oregon high school math teacher will face an attack Friday from an affiliate of the nation’s largest abortion business.
Planned Parenthood of Columbia/Willamette wants Bill Diss’ teaching license revoked. Diss heads Precious Children of Portland – a pro-life organization working to halt construction of Planned Parenthood’s new mega-abortion facility in Portland’s poorest neighborhood.
“Bill has organized one of the most effective efforts against Planned Parenthood in the country,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League. “It’s no surprise Planned Parenthood will resort to anything – even going after his teaching license – in order to silence him."
Diss opposes, 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 new Planned Parenthood business will target minority women for abortions.
According to Sedlak, Planned Parenthood has a history of using such strong-arm tactics against its opponents.
Planned Parenthood threatened to sue UCLA student Lila Rose after she went public with footage of the organization covering up statutory rape.
Planned Parenthood libeled Eric Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League after he mounted an effective campaign against the organization in Aurora, Illinois. As a result, Planned Parenthood is currently defending itself in a lawsuit.
As long ago as 1986, according to Sedlak, Planned Parenthood tried to get him fired from his job with IBM in New York State because it viewed him as a threat.
“Diss is one of the finest teachers I’ve met. His devotion to the children in the classroom naturally extends to the children in the womb,” Sedlak said. “I pray the Teacher’s Standards and Practices Commission recognizes Planned Parenthood’s hate-filled claim as a vitriolic, self-serving and groundless attack by the nation’s number-one killer of future students.”
American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to death.
