If you thought proponents of birth control were taking a back seat in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that allows for-profit companies to refuse coverage of contraception for religious reasons, think again.

In the most creative, delightfully shady and crafty way, women who are deemed less human than corporations (and their supporters) have taken to Hobby Lobby’s own crafting material to send a clear message.

Get the fuck out of our wombs.

It started with the picture above, one simple message designed with letter blocks at a Hobby Lobby Maryland branch by Policy Mic’s Adam Peck.

“It just seemed like a perfect opportunity to stage a kind of a silent protest, and the chance to use Hobby Lobby’s own products to do it was just too serendipitous to pass up,” Peck told Policy Mic. “I certainly don’t want to encourage other people to ransack their local…

Fifty Years Ago TODAY, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 Changed the Country for African Americans
