California is not alone on this one. There are at least 14 countries that have some sort of foie gras ban, mostly targeting its production. However, the difference is that the ban in California not only prohibits foie gras production but also bars shops and restaurants from selling it.On July 1, California will be bound by the most sweeping anti-foie gras statute in the world. Consumed by few, the pricey delicacy made from duck or goose’s liver is lusted after by chefs and diners for its rich, singular flavor and versatility on the plate for everything from hot dogs to ice cream.

    I'm opposed to animal cruelty. Force injecting corn meal into a duck to enlarge it's liver is just plain wrong.

    Cramming grain down a ducks throat until his liver bursts. Yes it should be banned. But it is very good!

    I have never tried it. The only thing I knew about it is that it is duck or goose liver. What is the big deal and why is it being banned?.

    It's made from engorged goose liver. They force feed a goose so that its liver grows oversized at a rapid pace. It's not good for the goose, obviously. It's comparable to liverwurst. Only it tastes a lot better.

    When the liver is removed, the goose isn't living to well either.

    It tastes very similar, only it's not nearly as strong. It's a lot more subtle.

    I had it once, it was delicious. Then I found out what it was. I could never even think of eating it again. It is the product of animal abuse and well it should be illegal!

    It is clear that you never had this inhumane nasty as hell item. How could anyone with half a heart ever eat it. Do your homework before you show your ignorance please. It should be stopped worldwide and BANNED ! It is NOT moronic but humane. I assume you do know the difference. I would think that even people in Indiana are able to know the truth.
    Do they not ?

    WELL HELL! Of course it should be banned!

    What makes dumbasses believe that it should be legal to engage in animal cruelty, just because some people think it tastes good? Or, are you perfectly fine with shoving a tube down an animal's throat and force-feeding them?

    Cruelty to animals isn't a matter of YOUR personal freedom. It's immoral, UNETHICAL AND AGAINST THE LAW!

    You didn't answer my question. Sure, you gave an option that people can choose, but, why should this be legal? What good purpose does it serve?

    Because life is hard, and the more freedoms that are lost, leave fewer freedoms.

    How is that an answer to why this should be legal?
    Your logic implies that we should also be free to murder humans... nowhere in your constitution does it say, or even imply, that something like this would be a protected freedom, since it doesn't impact on your life or liberty.
