Lower smear tests to 16

This petition had 686 supporters

After turning 25 and going for my first ever smear test, i had abnormal cells return. A biopsy was taken and luckily, i return for smears every year. If this was lowered to 16 years old, it could be caught a lot sooner and acted upon faster. Cervical cancer is common and happens more than we know. If this is raised then we play our part in saving lives of mothers, daughters, wife’s and girlfriends all around the UK. As a mother of two boys, I was petrified i wouldn’t be here to watch them grow up. Even though i’m still not out of the dark, some young women could be and deserve to be.
