The Freedom Party ("Frihedspartiet", FP) is a christian-democratic Danish political party.

The party was founded on 7 July 2007 by Ruth Evensen, former pastor of "Faderhuset" evangelical church, Eivind Fønss and Agner Dalgaard. [ [http://politiken.dk/indland/article338462.ece Ruth Evensen starter nyt parti - Politiken.dk ] ]

One of the party's core policies is opposition to free abortion, and in fact the party announced its creation on the day that the Christian Democrats announced that they no longer opposed free abortion.
