By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

STOCKHOLM (Worthy News)– A Scandinavian rights group has filed a lawsuit against the Swedish government on behalf of a Christian midwife who was fired for refusing to perform abortions, according to International Christian Concern.

In the lawsuit, lawyers charged that the Jönköping County Council had supported three hospitals that withdrew offers of work from Ellinor Grimmark after the Council made performing abortions an obligation for employment as a midwife.

Roger Kiska, senior legal counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom-Europe, was confident that the Swedish courts would rule in Grimmarks' favor.

"In a civil society in this day and age, it is shocking that we are denying one of the most fundamental of human rights, the right to conscience," he said. "A society has truly lost its way when it excludes someone from the healthcare profession merely because they want to bring human life into the world rather than destroying it."

        Though I should add that I do pray for their repentance of their sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ before it is too late!

    Pretty sick when you can be fired for refusing to murder children.
