Carphone Warehouse should abandon its "Pro Choice" ad campaign. Sign this to show your disgust and boycotting of the store.

No consumer should be subject to a certain viewpoint by any business when choosing to shop at their store.

The Carphone Warehouse recently produced a series of advertisements for their business in proclaiming the range of "choice" at their stores.

The problem is; they've used the repeal of the eight amendment of the Irish Constitution (which gives equal right to life of the unborn child and the mother) as a comparison for choice. This is incredibly insensitive and cold.

It has upset both sides of the abortion debate. And many people on both sides have said they will be boycotting the store as a result of this messy and insensitive ad campaign.

It is important that businesses don't get involved in controversial topics when advertising their products so as not to alienate potential/existing customers. But they did just the opposite.

Please sign this in solidarity with the Irish people who believe in decency, whether in favour of the repeal of the Eight Amendment or the retention of it, to send a strong message to the Carphone Warehouse that you plan to boycott their business as a result of their behaviour.

Petition to: The Carphone Warehouse

Dear Carphone Warehouse, 

As you're aware, you're company has created an advertising campaign for your store, stating "we're Pro Choice". There is a massive poster on St. Patrick's Street in Cork and more around the country with this advert on it. I would strongly urge you to remove this poster and cease this advertising campaign immediately. 

This is an incredibly divisive and offensive issue. It's also an excruciatingly difficult and traumatising decision for a woman to make and for you then to opportunise and cash in on this and turn it into a marketing tool is extremely offensive and incredibly insensitive to both sides of the debate. 

I'm shocked and appalled. It's disgraceful to use the targeting of an innocent human being (the unborn child) in the act of abortion, and hinting at the repeal of the only remaining legal protection left for the unborn in Ireland as part of an advertising campaign by your company. I as a consumer should not be subject to a particular viewpoint by any business when deciphering where to purchase products.

The fact remains, that because of the Eight Amendment of the Irish Constitution 100,000 lives have been saved over the past number of years. We are a world leader in maternal healthcare as proclaimed by the UN, who by the way have in its Declaration of Human Rights "Everybody has the right to life" (Article 3).

  
I strongly urge you to cease this campaign and remove this poster and any other ones you have up around the country.

As a result of this highly offensive and exploitative marketing on your part, I pledge to never support your business in any way again and to discourage anyone I know from doing so too.
