This morning the California state Supreme Court ruled that doctors "must treat gays and lesbians the same as any other patient." What a novel idea, right? It all started back in 2000 when Guadalupe Benitez, a Southern Californian queer with baby fever, sued North Coast Women's Care Medical Group and two of its doctors in Vista for refusing to inseminated her because of their (alleged) Christian beliefs. Today's ruling, S142892, now means that California quacks can no longer use whatever mystical religious spell they're under as an excuse not to treat queer patients or as a defense in court. (SFGate)
