“As a mother of 4, I know how important it is for ALL women to have access to life-saving health measures, not just women that might be able to afford them.
And as a woman that has a family history of different types of cancers, it’s even more important that tests like the Pap smear and HPV are not only a part of my gynecological visits yearly but remain that way for my daughters that come behind me.
Proposed policy guidelines could recommend that the Pap smear, the life-saving, pre-cancer screening test, should no longer be a part of many women’s annual gynecological exams.
This would mean that insurance would no longer have to cover it, which could leave some women at risk that may not be able to afford to have the screening done on their own.
This can’t happen!”
