During the spring of 2017, it was decided that the association Ja till Livet and the Provita Foundation would merge and form the association Människovärde. Människovärde wants to contribute to changing the opinion towards increasing respect for the human unique and inviolable value. The work is based on three tasks: advocacy, counseling and education.
The association Ja till Livet was founded in 1990 by Mikael Oscarsson, and until spring 2017 it was Sweden’s largest pro-life organization. The Provita Foundation worked for many years focusing on spreading Christian ethics in society and promoting human dignity. In 1997, Provita started the hotline Livlinan to advise, support and help women and men in abortion situations and women who are considering abortion or have gone through with an abortion. Through Livlinan, Provita wanted to offer a complement to society’s various receptions.
