Campbell Newman: Get Your Hands Off Our Breasts

    1. Petition by

      United Voice Queensland

Breast Cancer is a leading killer of Queensland women - and screening is a proven way of saving lives, cutting screening will cost lives.

BreastScreen works because its a centralised, statewide system of offering mammograms and other checks to women. Their entire business is breasts - and keeping the women of Queensland safe.

Closing down BreastScreen makes no sense.  We can not let the government close such an iconic service.

    1. We got their hands off BreastScreen, now they are after preventative health

      1900 people signed our petition to save BreastScreen, and the government backed down - now they are telling staff that preventative healthcare is "no longer a government priority"

      We need to tell the government that prevention is better than cure - and that we value a healthy community.

      We have set up a new petition show the government that the community knows that preventative healthcare is just common sense - and that the government's attempts to save a buck by defunding preventative health is just wrong.

      Breast Screening saves lives, don't let those in rural Australia miss out on the chance to be a survivor.
