Wow, sure looks like a groundswell here, huh?
Dozens of protesters Monday gathered at a Hobby Lobby store in Burbank in response to last week’s Supreme Court decision that allowed the company to exempt certain contraceptives from employees’ medical insurance on moral grounds.
KNX 1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports members of pro-choice groups like Planned Parenthood and the National Organization of Women were on hand to encourage shoppers to boycott the store’s grand opening.
Dozens? Really? And the media dutifully shows up. Right-to-life marches in Washington draws hundreds of thousands and the media doesn’t even bother reporting it.
Protesters were seen marching and holding signs that read “Birth Control Empowers Women” and “Your Boss’ Superstition Trumps Your Doctor’s Prescription” outside the store located at 641 N. Victory Boulevard.
Prior to the event, supporters had been encouraged to “dress up in an IUD or condom costume” in order to “celebrate the beautiful sexual autonomy which people (but especially women) posses (sic)” on the group’s Facebook page.
One protester who took part in the peaceful demonstration said she wants to make sure women’s voices are being heard.
“If we don’t stop and point out to people that our rights are being taken away, apathy will take over and people will just let the corporations run over them,” she said.
Nobody is losing any rights, but why bother with the facts? Speaking of facts, we think the use of swarm in this headline is just a bit misleading.
Meanwhile there was a massive outpouring in Kansas:

Looks like the last thing this bunch needs to worry about is birth control.
