    The reason why animal rights groups focus on religious slaughter without stunning is because a slaughter without wstunning causes pain and suffering of the animal. It is as simple as that. Any other slaughter has to be performed after the animal is made unconscious and cannot feel the pain of cut (research Massey, New Zealand proved that animals do feel pain even though the author might think otherwise) and the pain of bleeding out to death (many research show that animals do not lose conscioussnes instantly when cut during unstunned slaughter - it might take up to couple of minutes - EFSA, FAWC reports). It is absurd for Jews to say: we can kill animals as we please, because there are animals beig killed. If you want to kill an animal, do it in a way that will prevent it from suffering. Ritual slaughter without stunning doesn't prevent suffering. It has been proven scientifically. Additionally there is no reason for JEws to kill animals without stunning... The question is: why do they CHOOSE to do so?
