Take a Break's Drop the Age

    1. Petition by

      Take a Break magazine

Take a Break magazine has launched a campaign called Drop the Age, to persuade the government to look again at the age women are called for cervical screening.


We believe that 25 is too late to start the screening programme. Lowering the age would save the lives, health and fertility of countless young women.


Our views are backed by our readers and leading health professionals.


No more daughters, sisters or young mothers should die needlessly from cervical cancer. Please sign our petition and add your voice to our campaign.

Thank you.

To:
I support Take a Break magazine's Drop the Age campaign, and agree that 25 is too late to start screening women for cervical cancer.

I ask that the government should look again at the age women are called for cervical screening.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
