April 2017 : Swedish court case on Freedom of Religion : a Swedish Christian midwife argues the right to refuse taking part in abortions

A Swedish midwife who refuses to carry out abortions has appealed to a labour tribunal after having been denied employment three times. Ellinor Grimmark objects to be active in abortions because of her Christian faith, and refers to the principle of freedom of religion, which is a fundamental part of Swedish constitutional law. The appeal hearing was held in January 2017, and the verdict is expected in April.
