Why Slaughterhouses Should Be Illegal

Introduction

Slaughterhouses have no place in the 21st century; they are barbaric, unnecessary, cause suffering to both animals and humans, and the killing of countless lives who wanted to live and be free.

Problems

Halal and Kosher

Halal is meat that is prepared as prescribed by Muslim law. According to this article, halal proposes the following 4 requirements:

  1. An animal should not be dead prior to slaughter
  2. A Muslim should perform slaughter
  3. Any flowing blood of the carcass should be completely drained
  4. Choice of modern and in vogue method has to be considered with caution and, it should be in line with Islamic principles

In this article it states: “FSA estimates suggest that 88% of animals in the UK killed by halal methods were stunned beforehand in a way that many Muslims find religiously acceptable.”

According to this website, “Kosher slaughter does not involve stunning. Kosher meat must be slaughtered in a particular way so as to be “fit and proper” for people of the Jewish faith to consume, and must not contain any blood. The animals must be killed by a rabbi specially trained in religious slaughterer. A sharp knife is used to cut the oesophagus, the trachea, carotid arteries and jugular veins in one action. Excessive pressure on the blade is forbidden. The animal is raised so blood flows out and this is then covered with dirt. Failure to do any of these acts correctly means the animal is considered unfit to eat.

From the animals perspective, halal and kosher are worse for animals, because kosher does not involve stunning, and halal doesn’t use stunning all the time.

Conclusion

– Don’t be the reason an animal had to die for your tastebuds; instead, be like this woman singing a pig to sleep in a slaughterhouse in Austria: https://www.reddit.com/r/vegan/comments/93p7zm/activist_sings_pig_to_sleep_in_slaughterhouse/
