Swedish Court Rules Against Pro-Life Midwife

Swedish midwife Ellinor Grimmark is pro-life and refuses to perform abortions. Because of this, she was denied employment at several hospitals. Yet Sweden’s Labor Court ruled she had not been discriminated against and found her freedom of opinion and expression had not been violated. In addition to losing her court case, she was ordered to pay costs and damages of approximately $139,000 CAD to the local County Council. Her legal team is considering an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.
