State of Washington Upholds Kosher Slaughter

An animal rights group lost its appeal in the State of Washington, where a court ruled that a law allowing ritual slaughter is constitutional.

The decision came several weeks after Holland passed a bill, which has not yet been signed into law, prohibiting kosher slaughter and requiring that the “stunning” method be used. The measure faces another vote in the Dutch Senate and, if passed, a probable appeal to the European court on its legality.

The Washington appeal court ruled against Pasado’s Safe Heaven, which claimed that the state law favors religion because it requires humane slaughter by stunning or “in accordance with the ritual requirements” of a religion.
