Portland: Help Ban Foie Gras Sales
This action is for Portland, OR, residents only.
Portland could be the next municipality to ban the sale of foie gras — a cruelly made product produced by force-feeding young ducks and geese until their livers swell to eight times their natural size.
A proposed ordinance would prohibit Portland restaurants and retailers from selling any product made through the force-feeding of ducks or geese.
