The U.S. Supreme Court decision to allow Hobby Lobby and other closely held, for-profit corporations to opt out of the Affordable Care Act’s provisions for no-cost prescription contraception has ignited debate across the country — and Oregon is no exception. Many Oregonians took to Twitter to criticize the decision, and some called for a boycott of the craft store chain using the hashtags #NotMyBossBusiness and #HobbyLobby.

There weren’t many locals tweeting in support of the ruling.

There’s only one Hobby Lobby in Oregon, located in Albany, and another is planned for Springfield in 2015. OPB’s Kristian Foden-Vencil will have a report later today on All Things Considered to see what other Oregon companies may be affected by this ruling.
