Religous Freedom Case Heard in California

On May 27th, the California Supreme Court heard a case which could have a drastic effect on religious freedom in that state.

From the San Diego Union Tribune:

The issue is whether fertility physicians at North Coast Women’s Care in Vista discriminated against a lesbian couple from Oceanside when they cited religious beliefs in refusing to perform artificial insemination….

…That group says this is a “potentially landmark, historic case” that will decide the scope of religious freedom in the state constitution.

The ACRU filed an amicus brief on this case, arguing that a doctor has the right to refuse to perform a procedure on someone whose lifestyle goes against their religious beliefs.
