redhen Posted February 16, 2013 #151 Share Posted February 16, 2013 Sorry, did not see the documentary, but will have a look, thankyou. Yes it seems no one else watched it. Otherwise people would have objected that the video shows abnormalities in slaughterhouse practices. But I submit that these horrors happen routinely. In the U.S. humane farming legislation it has a paragraph that explains how to look for signs of consciousness, and if these signs are existent, the animal is to be stunned again. All too often animals are cut up, bit by bit, fully conscious. I will beg to differ on the eating meat is cruel, but respect your own personal view. It's not my opinion, it's a logical conclusion. Governments around the world exclude cattle and lab animals from cruelty laws because of tradition and economic factors. It is cruel nonetheless. My grandmother lived off her land, she grew all her own vegetables... So did mine. I'm sure some of my ancestors also owned slaves. This is an appeal to tradition, and it is a logical fallacy. Humans have always hunted for food, and meat has been part of that. Again, appeal to tradition. I am glad that we do not all have to kill animals in an inhumane way, There is no such thing as humane slaughter, anymore than there is humane slavery. but am still shocked at the fact that rituals like halal are still allowed to sell the meat in the western world. Yes, some cultures are more advanced than others. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
