Promote Compassion Towards Animals!

Foie gras, considered by some to be a delicacy, is produced by forcing a long metal pipe down the throats of ducks and geese and force-feeding them massive amounts of grain, resulting in their livers swelling to up to 10 times their normal size.

This 'delicacy' is so cruel that there are countless restaurants that refuse to serve it and it has been banned in at least two areas in the United States. Legislation to ban this cruel industry and product is pending in several other areas.

In 2004, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill into law that will ban the force-feeding of ducks and geese and the sale of foie gras in California in 2012.

On April 26, 2006, the Chicago City Council approved Joe Moore's ordinance to ban foie gras making Chicago the first American city to do so. Thank you to everyone who called and wrote to make this possible.

Other Anti-Foie Gras campaigns have popped up in Philadelphia, Maryland, New Jersey and Connecticut - AND that is just in the states!

Compassionate people all over the world have taken a stand against the cruelty involved in foie gras production. Please join us in doing whatever you can to help!
