Lower Smear Test Age

This petition had 8 supporters

*Rates are also high in developing nations, where more than 80% of cervical cancer cases occur. Worldwide, cervical cancer is the third most common cancer among women and the second most frequent cause of cancer-related death, accounting for nearly 300,000 deaths annually.*

I would like your help in lowering the age for smear tests from 25 to 18.  

Thousands of young women die every day across the globe because of cervical cancer.  Young women are dying in this country everyday from cervical cancer. 25 is much to old for a smear test when people are becoming sexually active younger and younger.  By lowering the age, cervical cancer can hopefully be caught in time and can be effectively treated.

If even only one country takes this leap more may follow.

Everyone should be entitled to a smear test.

Please, help me save lives.

Please help me change this. 

Thank you.
