Thousands of people flocked to Balboa Park on Sunday, April 18, to celebrate EarthFair 2010. This year marked the 20th anniversary of the celebration, billed as "The world's largest annual environmental fair" by event producer San Diego Earthworks. Educational exhibits, music, and earth-friendly food were offered alongside a dose of shock and controversy: anti-abortion activists protested near the Planned Parenthood booth.

"Three hundred and seventy-five dollars! Best money you could ever spend. No child support. No kids running around," shouted Jeff White sarcastically while holding one of many giant signs depicting aborted fetuses. He and other pro-life advocates made their voices heard just a few feet from pro-choice supporters who offered information on safe sex, birth control, and abortion.

Many people walking by expressed their disapproval of the use of the venue for the debate as tensions ran high between the two groups. Upon her arrival to help staff the Planned Parenthood booth, a volunteer said she was confronted by a member of the Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, who said, "Here comes someone who's found her place on Earth. She's a baby killer." The woman later reflected on her experience by saying, "It was pretty disturbing, but, because of their antics, tons of people came to talk to us."

Both police and private security were present and no violent confrontations between the two groups were reported.

They had to put signs up warning people that the area these protesters were in would subject them to graphic images. It was disturbing. I felt bad for the legitimate booths that were on the opposite side of them, because people were avoiding the area in general. I took note that the most aggressive protesters of the "pro-life" group were men.

It is so interesting how the Victims of Massive Programming are so Upset at Deprogramming Efforts! Baby Killing is a Ancient Cult that was Prevalent in Biblical Times...the SACRIFICE of HUMAN CHILDREN to Old Gods were the MORAL TRUTH that the TORAH gave mankind. Unfortunately, the "Woman's Right To Kill Her Own Children, for fun & profit," is NOW a GOVERNMENT approved, CORPORATE Cash-Cow. Also, a revitalisation of the Pre-Genius Cult of LILITH. Leviticus 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through [the fire] to MOLECH, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I [am] the LORD.

Leviticus 20:2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever [he be] of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth [any] of his seed unto MOLECH; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

Leviticus 20:3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto MOLECH, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

Leviticus 20:4 And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto MOLECH, and kill him not:

Leviticus 20:5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with MOLECH, from among their people.

1 Kings 11:7 Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that [is] before Jerusalem, and for MOLECH, the abomination of the children of Ammon.

2 Kings 23:10 And he defiled Topheth, which [is] in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to MOLECH.

Jeremiah 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which [are] in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through [the fire] unto MOLECH; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

Whether one is Religious, or no, the DEGENERATE, Amoral and Unnatural SENSE OF DIABOLICAL POWER a woman "Feels" by KILLING HER YOUNG has destroyed the nation.

it was completely not the right venue for the type of graphic images these people were displaying..its one thing to express your views but its totally something else once little children are crying and screaming in fright over the huge pictures they were showing of blood and gore!! Not only that but they were speaking very rudely to the families that were there to celebrate EARTH DAY!! i mean c'mon most of the images were actually created for the purpose of grossing you out!! This is NOT what people want to see on a sunday afternoon!!!

The only thing standing between me and a life sentence as a serial killer.

Abortion is legal.

Glad no violence occurred.

The fact is the radical element can be very dangerous/deadly on an issue like this.
