“Women MUST have access to Pap smears, which can detect changes in the cervix before cancer develops and can find cervical cancer early and when it’s easier to cure. Eliminating the Pap would leave thousands of women vulnerable to incomplete testing, which is simply unacceptable. Women are the pillars of society, therefore their health should be a priority in our healthcare system.

Personally, I’m a bit of a hypochondriac. Recently, my period was a bit irregular, which is very unusual for me, so I started googling possible conditions and got worried that I might have cervical cancer because I always think the worst. I made an appointment with my gynecologist and had a Pap done and my worries went away. It was such a relief, and it was that simple and easy.”
