Los Angeles Times Supports the Ban on Foie Gras

Columnist Carla Hall applauds a judge’s recent refusal after a pro-foie gras coalition submitted a request to have the ban overturned.

Los Angeles Times columnist Carla Hall expressed her support for the refusal of a Los Angeles, CA judge to halt California state’s ban on foie gras. In her September 20 column, Hall writes, “the judge made the right decision,” calling the force-feeding practice “cruel and inhumane,” and bluntly noting “no one has been able to … fatten up ducks and geese enough for foie gras without force-feeding them. So get over it.” The request was submitted by a group comprised of select restaurants, foie gras producers, and a Canadian association representing duck and geese farmers of Quebec who are suing the state of California, calling the law “unconstitutional.” In 2008, California passed Proposition 2, which outlawed excessively small cages for egg-laying hens in the Golden State.
