Letter to the Editor by Jenny Moxham: Blood Money - 4 Aug 2007

Blood money The Age, August 4, 2007

SLICING the throats of conscious, sensitive animals and then allowing them to agonisingly choke to death on their own blood (The Age, 3/8) is barbaric. It must not be allowed to insidiously infiltrate Australia. Nor should our Government "bend" our animal welfare laws by allowing "special arrangements" to be made at certain abattoirs simply to enable them to increase their profits.

With regard to ritual slaughter, Jews and Muslims who favour non-stunning methods of slaughter need to move into the 21st century. If they looked into their hearts, instead of their books, they would realise that a God of love and mercy would never want sensitive beings needlessly subjected to a torturous death. Cruelty is the opposite of love.

Jennifer Moxham, Monbulk
