Strasbourg, March 20, 2020.- Two Swedish nurses who were denied jobs as midwives for their refusal to perform abortions have had their legal appeal dismissed by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
This comes shortly after the publication of a Report by the European Center for Law and Justice (ECLJ), linking many of the court’s judges to organizations that promote abortion as a human right. Of the one hundred judges that have served on the ECHR since 2009, 22 were formerly affiliated with one of those organizations. The organization with the greatest number of judges as former employees —twelve of the 22— is the Open Society Foundation. This international organization, founded and funded by Hungarian billionaire George Soros, also funds six organizations linked to ECHR judges in this report.
