Who could say it better than Israa? Women are the strongest beings on earth, which means they deserve the best care and the absolute right to make decisions about their own well being – and that includes regular access to the Pap test.
“Women are the strongest beings on earth, our bodies are incredible. We endure nine months of a human growing inside, and then endless hours of labor to birth new life. Without us, life would cease to exist. Yet, our entire lives, others have tried to dictate what we should and shouldn’t do with our bodies. Well, it’s time to regain our strength and tell everyone else to kiss it because our bodies are the form of life and love. Having available health screenings has been a godsend in easing my worries amongst many other women. From a young age, my doctor informed my mother and I on the importance of the cervical cancer vaccine and testing! As an adult, I have made it a point to get an annual Pap test to ensure that I am always monitoring my internal health. All women should have easy accessibility to these tests! We need to ensure that we are proactive in ensuring that we live the healthiest life possible. Getting tested can help save lives.”
