Polish parliament shuns religious animal slaughter

Protesters shout slogans in front of the Polish parliament Thursday July 11, 2013 against a governmental effort to reinstate ritual slaughter of animals for export to Israel and Muslim countries, which is a source of good business for Poland and its farmers. Ritual slaughter was banned last year under pressure from animal rights groups who argue that it entails unnecessary suffering to animals which are not stunned before death. The lawmakers are to vote Friday on a government draft law setting strict conditions for ritual slaughter . The poster on the right reads: This horror must end. (AP Photo/Alik Keplicz)
