What Really Is Behind Foie Gras Production?

With the upcoming ban of foie gras (French term for fatty liver) production in California and its potential repercussions around the country, producers are trying their best to appeal to consumers. One producer in NY, Hudson Valley Foie Gras, opened its doors to a CNN reporter in order to let consumers see what really is behind foie gras production. From the raising of baby ducks to their force-feeding and slaughter, readers can get informed and ultimately decide the fate of foie gras.

In spite of producers’ attempts to make foie gras production look harmless and innocent, it still remains as the totally unnecessary victimization of ducks and geese. Force-feeding any creature goes against their God-given nature and it causes stress, pain and fear. After all, how many people have ever seen a duck or a geese walking happily toward being force-fed?
As long as we keep rationalizing the exploitation of God’s animals we cannot even pretend we are being good stewards of God’s Creation for this role implies caring and respecting all creatures.
