A Christian woman in Sweden has been unable to find work as a midwife since a hospital where she interned last year dismissed her for refusing to help perform abortions. Hospital officials in the southern town of Eksjö had promised to extend Ellinor Grimmark’s contract until she refused to participate in abortions last summer, she said. Another hospital agreed to hire Grimmark but then reneged due to her convictions and the controversy growing over them, and no other hospital would hire her in spite of a shortage of midwives in Sweden. Grimmark, a 37-year-old wife and mother who has since found work as a nurse, has filed a complaint with Sweden’s Discrimination Ombudsman, in a case that it is hoped will help establish protections for freedom of conscience in Sweden.
