The Shreveport/Bossier Chapter of the National Organization of Women spent their Saturday morning protesting the Kings Highway entrance to Hobby Lobby.

"Women are not going to remain quiet while the United States government steps on our legal humanitarian right to health care" Debbie Hollis of NOW tells NBC 6 News.

The United States Supreme Court ruled on June 30 that the owners of closely-held, profit-making corporations cannot be forced under the Affordable Care Act to provide their employees with certain kinds of contraceptives that offend their religious beliefs.
