Foie Gras Days are Coming to an End in CA

Foie gras, French for "fatty liver," is produced by force-feeding ducks using a pipe and forcing these poor animals to ingest several pounds of food at once, two to three times a day. Without a question, this causes tremendous suffering to these animals, whose livers become engorged and diseased, swelling up to ten times their normal size and resulting in much unimaginable emotional and physical suffering.
California's statewide ban on the sale and production of foie gras is set to take effect on July 1, 2012, making California the first state that bans this cruel practice.

Please visit California Prepares to Say Farewell to Foie Gras as Ban Approaches:
What we do to animals is really horrific. While the ban of foie gras production and sale in CA is a great step toward a more compassionate world, we should ask ourselves, "Why is it that only one state is taking a stand on this issue?" The answer is because the exploitation of God's animals is supported by most people who virtually everyday of their lives have the flesh and secretions of animals in their refrigerators and in their bodies. Unless more people say "NO" to victimization and "YES" to compassion and mercy, we will continue to face corruption, disease, devastation, discrimination and conflict.
