    Why the age for smear testing should be lowered 

     5 reasons why I believe the age for smear testing should be lowered:   1. At 18 years old, I can get married without parental consent. I can join the armed forces. I can even buy a house if I’m in the financial position to. But I must wait 7 years more before I’m eligible for a smear test, as the risks of me having a smear test, are considered to outweigh the benefits.
