Death at the hands of halal slaughter pales in comparison to the horrors of life at the hands of western intensive farming practice. It seems contradictory that snapping a piglet's teeth off with pliers and no anaesthetic is perfectly legal and not a concern of "animal rights" yet cutting it's throat to kill it is illegal

And do you have any proof to suggest they are either not conforming to animal cruelty laws, or not reforming practises at the same time as introducing this new law?

Good.

Religious sensitivities are no excuse for not applying the law fairly across all sectors of society.

There are no plans to completely overhaul or abolish factory farming in Denmark or any other nation for that matter, it is a process that's essential for supporting the population. The issue is not whether teeth clipping or other practises conform with animal cruelty laws, it doesn't need to be written into law that it is cruel, one can gauge that easily for themselves.

Damn, well done to them. I would've expected them to have banned all pork and meat not vetted as kosher or halal, but damn. They actually took control of their country rather than let abroad take control.

I agree; I've even heard of non-Muslims and non-Jews only eating halal and kosher meat because they support animal rights.

There have been numerous reports on Countryfile about UK farms having to go to great lengths to pass EU laws on animal care, laws that apply to everyone in the EU.

You can tell who the morons are in this thread; the people who are saying its a great move, and animal rights come first.


How can you call this a animal rights move, but its still legal to kill millions of animals.



Am I allowed the kill humans as long as its pain free?

If you don't like being in the EU then vote UKIP.

Because we're all not morons as we understand that humans require meat* in their diet and that it is perfectly reasonable and sensible to have and keep animals for the purpose of food, as long as those animals are kept humanely and are not subjected to pain in their life.







*'Require meat' may be an exaggeration and over simplification, but 'require the nutrients, minerals and vitamins from meat' is not.

How the hell did you get that from what I'd written?! Do you just reply to any post with "EU" in it and assume it's negative?
