Foie gras proponents avoid the facts
Category : Uncategorized
When we are out protesting a restaurant that serves foie gras or out collecting petition signatures people occasionally come along who don’t agree with us. Sometimes they are even willing to stop and exchange a few words with us. What is odd, however, is that so often they are unwilling to deal with the actual facts of these ducks who are confined in cages and force-fed until their livers get 10 times the size they should be.
This avoidance of the central argument against foie gras is also pretty common when people write about our campaign. They are very willing to take shots at us personally or detour into discussions of our ultimate objectives or talk about other issues we should be dealing with. Almost never, however, does anyone speak directly to the cruelty of force-feeding ducks until they are nearly dead.
I wonder why this is?
