Abstract

This article deals with ritual slaughter and the consequences of a possible ban on un-stunned slaughter for the freedom to manifest one's religion. Following a discussion of the religious origins of ritual slaughter, the article examines the general consequences of the practice on animal welfare. The practice is also reviewed in light of the freedom to manifest one's religion, as protected by Article 9 of the European Convention of Human Rights. As will be made clear, invoking one's right to the freedom to manifest one's religion is not sufficient to withstand possible limitations on this freedom.
