Belgian Regional Parliament Passes Law Banning Kosher Slaughter

June 29, 2017: from the Algemeiner:

"The parliament in Flanders, the predominantly Flemish-speaking province of Belgium, voted by a near-unanimous majority to ban the ritual slaughter of animals on Wednesday."
"Only one deputy in the regional parliament voted against the measure, which will require animals slaughtered for human consumption to be stunned first — a rule that violates the religious laws for preparing both kosher and halal meat products."
"The vote comes one month after the same measure was passed by the parliament in Wallonia, the country’s French-speaking region."
