TRAUMA CENTER DROPS RAPE VICTIMS FOR REFUGEES

WASHINGTON – A trauma-care center in Sweden has been told to stop treating rape victims and focus instead on the growing refugee population.


The Crisis Trauma and Care Center in Stockholm, Sweden, was recently told by Stockholm County Council members that it should no longer cover raped women, who have been referred to the clinic for a long time. The clinic estimates that about 140 out of their 200 annual patients are rape victims.

At the same time, there has been an uptick in rapes and sexual assaults by immigrants in recent years.


Gang rapes are on the rise, mostly committed by young immigrant men from predominantly Muslim countries, where it is not considered a crime to rape non-Muslim women.
