Religious Animal Slaughter to be Banned in The Netherlands

Some good news for animals in the Netherlands (kind of)!

The country’s parliament is set to pass a bill that would ban the slaughter of livestock without stunning them first, a practice which has long been allowed for orthodox Dutch Jews and Muslims as part of their dietary rules.

Ritual and religious animal slaughter then— the method being cutting the animals throat with a razor-sharp knife— would be no more. A decision which has outraged Jewish and Muslim groups, as they claim the ban goes against their freedom to practice their religion and will make it impossible for them to eat meat.

In the Netherlands, the left wingers see this ritual slaughter as cruelty to animals, whereas the right side of the spectrum finds it to be barbaric. Meaning that the bill will likely pass today.

What do you all think, is it acceptable to limit religious freedoms in this case?
