Lower smear test age to 20
This petition had 900 supporters
Lots of young women are slipping through the net and are dying of cervical cancer when they should not be. We have a right to keep our organs safe which reproduce humans on this earth. Cervical cancer isn't taken seriously in my opinion and although we have the vaccines, males should have them too as they can pass on HPV. I am now 21 and constantly worry about my cervical health as my mum has had abnormal cells show up on her smears and cancer has run in the maternal side of my family. It would benefit myself, my friends, my future family and all other girls who may slip through the net. We want to take care of ourselves but practically have to beg for any notice to be taken.
