Swedish labour court rules against anti-abortion midwife
Published April 12, 2017

A court in Sweden has ruled against an anti-abortion midwife in a case that will set a precedent for the treatment of evangelical Christian healthworkers.

The Swedish Labour Court, or Arbetsdomstol, ruled that JönköpingCounty did not discriminate against Ellinor Grimmark unfairly when it decided not to employ her.

"The Swedish Labour Court considers that a portion of the [midwife's] demands are too out-of-date and no longer applicable, and that the midwife has not been able to prove some of her claims," the court said.

The court also judged that "no breach of the midwife's freedom of opinion or expression had been committed".
