Len Pen pledges to regulate animal slaughter if she wins Presidential elections


Marine Le Pen, the French presidential candidate, has promised to regulate animal slaughter if she wins the upcoming presidential elections against President Emmanuel Macron. The far-right leader has advocated the move saying that it would reduce animal suffering.

Le Pen has suggested that all the animals should be astonished before being slaughtered, framing the issue of animal rights and welfare.


However, Jewish and Muslims have objected to it, proclaiming that their ways of kosher and halal were more humane.

Notably, France hosts the most prominent Muslim and Jewish populations in western Europe, and any such law could be interpreted as direct interference in freedom of religion.

“The intention is to target minority populations that bother her and send a message to voters who are against these minorities:’ Vote for me, because I will attack them and perhaps, with time, make them leave,” Guttmann asserted, slamming the pledge by the country’s presidential candidate.

Le Pen is set to contest against incumbent Emanuel Macron on April 24 in the second round of the presidential polls. She previously created headlines after she vowed to pull France out of NATO’s military command if she was elected as the country’s leader.

However, the French leader also clarified that she does not want France to leave the bloc and only wants the country to move out of its command structure.
