FREE SMEAR TESTS FOR UNDER 25S sign now

We, the undersigned, feel it is disgraceful that although the government purports to encourage the young women of Ireland to take responsibility for their health, they fail to provide so basic a service as smear tests for under 25s for free. As a result, many young women who develop cervical cancer in their 20s will fail to detect it at a time when it is most curable. We feel that 25 is an arbitrary age picked by the government as a transparent cost-cutting measure and we demand that the government provide this free service for all women aged 18 and over. It is also as disgrace that under 25s cannot avail of a smear test in certain college health facilities, even for a price. This system is inherently flawed and we feel that more information and a more open service to young women who choose to actively protect their health is in order.
