Thursday, a scattered group of protestors gathered alongside Canal Drive in Kennewick to protest the Supreme Court’s decision to allow Hobby Lobby to avoid offering birth control plans that involve abortion.

The Affordable Care Act required many businesses to offer such plans, despite their religious objections.  The Court cited federal statutes that allowed companies to exercise their religious freedoms.

According to our news partner KNDU-TV, the largely female protestors held up signs that featured slogans such as “Bigotry is Not a Hobby,” and “Boycott Hobby Lobby.

According to other additional sources,  the store’s business was not affected by the protestors, in fact following the decision, many Hobby Lobby stores reported slight upticks in their business, or business as usual.
