Chicago’s foie gras ban under threat
What may seem very surprising to compassionate people, the Chicago’s
foie gras ban, implemented last month, is already under threat. Two
council members (previously supporters of the ban), have filed an
ordinance with the city clerk to repeal it. One of them alleges that the
ban made Chicago a national laughingstock, while the second refers to
the people’s right to choose. Fortunately, on the side of compassion,
Gene Bauston, president of Farm Sanctuary, believes that "Chicago has
set a humane example, and it should be proud," and that "animal cruelty
should not be a choice."

Our hope is that the ban firmly remains in place and sets a precedent
for other states to follow. Kindness to animals is not a choice but an
act of obedience to God.
