Of all the shocking abuses inflicted upon farm animals, this one is certainly at the top of the list. Foie gras is a "delicacy" derived from shoving metal tubes down the throats of geese and ducks, and force-feeding them to the point where their livers are on the verge of exploding, having swollen up to ten times their normal size. The birds are then slaughtered and their livers are sold as an expensive "gourmet" specialty food.
The selling and purchasing of foie gras has already been banned in a dozen countries, the state of California, and the city of Chicago. This cruel product needs to be banned everywhere!
