By Rita Diller When I walked into this year’s Oregon Adolescent Sexuality Conference in Seaside, Oregon, one of the first things I encountered was a table manned by three young teen boys. On the table was a collage that included many depictions of totally bare female genitalia—obviously pornographic…
According to this news story, professors at the University of Buffalo compared pro-life students to a lynch mob and tried to shut them down. Of course, it was one of the professors who was actually arrested for behaving in a lynch mob manner.
The school district had a similar reaction to us when we protested Planned Parenthood’s involvement in our schools. While we were not the subject of profanity-laced tirades, the following meeting had a large number of security guards present as if we were some sort of threat to their safety. But we were no such thing. We are pro-life. We respect others, even when they don’t respect us.
At Buffalo University, pro-abortion professors and others objected to the graphic depiction of abortion present on the posters. If they are in favor of abortion, you would think they would be proud to have those pictures displayed. But they are not.
In Salem-Keizer School District, a grandmother read from a Planned Parenthood website. You would think that if they were in favor of Planned Parenthood in our schools, they would be proud to hear those words. But they weren’t. They asked the grandmother to stop reading from the text of the website. I think it was called “Take Care Down There”. Anyway, like the professor at Buffalo University who was arrested for harassing pro-life students, they are in favor of something they are not really proud of. They don’t want it shown. They tried to hide Planned Parenthood’s involvement, and downplayed what Planned Parenthood does. We think its better to be in favor of something that we are proud of.
There are two candidates for the school board who are in favor of getting rid of Planned Parenthood. Gayle Strawn is on the ballot, and Denise Quinn-Nanke is a write-in candidate. Support them with your votes. Just as important, support them by spreading the news on social media and telling your friends. Like them on Facebook. Forward e-mails. We need everyone to know about Planned Parenthood’s involvement in our schools, and that there are two candidates who aim to stop it.

We must act now to prevent Planned Parenthood from becoming more firmly entrenched in our school system. We must not have the nation’s largest promoter of promiscuity and teen age sex, and the nation’s largest abortion provider presented to our children as an educator, a community service organization, and a resource to meet their needs. Our children must be aware of this organization’s true nature, not have them presented as just another “agency” in our schools. Planned Parenthood must not be given access to our children in any form. In some school districts, they have even run clinics in the schools. We can’t let that happen here.
We are asking that the word be spread about what is going on. Post Salemschoolwatch.com on your Facebook page. E-mail your friends. Talk to your pastor. People need to be made aware of what is going on.
We would like every parent, every taxpayer, every community member to contact the school board and the superintendent to voice their opposition to Planned Parenthood’s presence in our schools.
We need people to show up at school board meetings.
Everyone should remain polite, but firm and insistent in communication with the district. We can’t take “no” for an answer.
Make it a special point to contact the Superintendent, the Chairperson of the School Board, and the Vice Chair Person of the school board, listed below.
Periodically check the website, salemschoolwatch.com for updates and information.
Don’t wait for “permission” to act. If you feel called to do something, then do it. But do keep in touch so we remain effective and aren’t duplicating efforts, or if you want to discuss an idea with someone.

On April 3, I challenged Oregon Republican legislators to stand up to Democrats and the Oregon abortion industry and not be bullied by the threat of facing a floor vote on HCR 6, which celebrates Oregon as the state with the fewest restrictions on the barbaric practice known as abortion. In these last ten days, something has happened that should bolster the collective spines of the GOP in Salem. Thanks to relentless reporting by conservative, non-mainstream media, the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia has finally given America and the rest of the world a gruesome, firsthand look inside an abortion slaughterhouse.
Meanwhile, in Salem, some GOP leaders are quietly hoping Democrat leadership does not bring HCR 6 to the floor, forcing a debate and uncomfortable vote on a keystone plank of the Democratic Party’s platform. To the contrary, there has never been a better time to open the doors to the abortion mills for everyone to see what occurs during this “medical procedure.” Democrats continue their party line that abortions must be kept “legal and safe.” Safe for whom? Babies who are effectively if not literally decapitated while screaming? And what is the response by Oregon’s NARAL and Planned Parenthood chapters to abortion’s dirtiest secrets being revealed? Well, they’re having a fundraiser and abortion comedy show.

Portland, Ore. – A math teacher at Benson High School in Portland has been placed on administrative leave for vocally opposing Planned Parenthood and abortion, and fears that he may be dismissed from his employment because of his beliefs. Bill Diss, who is also certified to teach college-level computer science to high school students, has taught at Benson High School for 11 years. He has been on paid leave since March 19th, and was informed that he has been recommended for dismissal before the 2014-2015 school year.
Diss had just finished teaching a class on the 19th – a Tuesday – and shortly after the students left the room he was informed that he was being immediately put on administrative leave “pending a recommendation to the superintendent that you be dismissed from your employment with Portland public schools for reasons that have been discussed with you.” He was given a brief moment to collect his things before being escorted from the building by police officers and told not to come back.
There is more to this story than meets the eye. Diss’ dismissal comes in the wake of a long-standing rivalry between Diss and the government-funded organization Planned Parenthood. Diss is a staunch Roman Catholic and pro-life advocate and claims a moral opposition to the organization and their positions on sex and abortion.

This video was taken in Salem, Oregon at the capitol on March 14, 2013. We decided to stroll up and ask some questions – the answers get really interesting at the 3:00 mark of the video. Initially, a young woman began to answer our questions but very quickly she was pulled back so a staffer could take control. The staffer proceeds to explain that Multnomah County has very different values and politics and as such, makes decisions for school based health clinics based upon those values and politics. The audio is not great but you can still understand, turn up on the volume on your speakers when listening. There were a lot of high school students milling around so there was quite a bit of back ground noise.
There were many children present at this school based health clinic booth that were brought in by the bus load. At least three school buses were seen in the capitol parking lot that Thursday. Interesting to note that after many of these children were set loose in the capitol with their talking points, a charter bus full of Planned Parenthood folks showed up and followed right behind the kids as they talked to legislators. Coincidence?
Thanks to Carlton Tilley for taking the video
