The state Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to hear a lawsuit by a lesbian against two fertility doctors who refused to artificially inseminate her on religious grounds.

Without comment, the court said it will hear the appeal by attorneys for Guadalupe T. Benitez, 34, of Oceanside in her lawsuit against Vista-based North Coast Women's Care Medical Group and Dr. Christine Brody and Dr. Douglas Fenton.

An appeals court ruled last year against Benitez, saying that the doctors could use religious freedom as a defense against her lawsuit. The doctors say their refusal was based on the fact that Benitez was unmarried, not because she's a lesbian.
