    the slightest doubt that

    Dear teachers,

    Am I correct in believing that in this sentence:

    "If there is even the slightest doubt that the animals are in more pain..."
    (this is from a discussion about slaughter without stunning)

    'doubt' can be replaced with 'suspicion'?


    kind regards,
    Joost
