petition here

"However, the Polish government wants to give an order so that women would be forced to undergo cytological, gynaecological examinations (also called cervical smear tests). In other words, the Polish government intends to make such examinations obligatory. The Polish Minister of Health wants to make women devoid of their work if they refuse to undergo these cytological, gynaecological examinations. "

For what possible reason? Do you have a link with some kind of rational for it?

ChunkyPickle Sun 05-Jun-11 21:38:07

Ahh, read the petition... I can't imagine that can ever go through, it's very obvious discrimination

Will men be forced to have a finger up their jacksie, for prostate reasons, then?

Enquiring minds, etc.

It is shocking that Poland is thinking of making very personal medical examinations for women compulsory. I personally am very offended by the way only breast and cervical cancer are championed as the only killers of women and I know that is an exaggeration!! but do you get my drift? Some illnesses get priority in the media and I am not convinced there is always a benign reason for this.

What makes you think this story is true? Just googled it and can only find anything on feminist websites.
has any one got a link to a 'mainstream site'?
