HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Since the Supreme Court ruling on Hobby Lobby earlier in the month, people have been camping outside the corporation protesting.

The supreme court decided in a 5-4 ruling that private corporations do not have to pay contraception coverage. Protesters in Huntsville said they know they can’t change the decision, but they can inform the public about what is happening.

“I just think people are not aware of how it will impact not just the employees at Hobby Lobby but people all over the country,” protester Josie Poland said.

The protest began at 11:30 a.m. Friday and protesters said they were committed to fighting the ruling.

“I’ll be back any time there’s another protest,” Poland said. “People just need to be aware that it will impact millions of people.”
