[Ed. – No cervix. But more important is the fate of all the real women whose cervical cancer diagnosis will be delayed to accommodate this government-sponsored feel-good charade.]
…[M]en identifying as women will be invited for cervical smear tests – even though they don’t have a cervix.
The advice comes from a 24-page booklet published by Public Health England called “Information for trans people”.
The PHE booklet explains “who we invite for screening”.
Transpeople who register with their GP as their birth sex will be invited to screenings appropriate to that, but if they register as they gender they identify as they will not be.
If a transman, born female, registers as male he won’t be invited for routine breast screenings at 50, or cervical screening. However, if a transwoman registers as female they will be routinely invited for cervical screening.
Cervical cancer claims the lives of 900 women each year in Britain, and it is believed the number would be four times higher without screening.
Screening saves lives by spotting cancer early so treatment can begin sooner. Those who are not screened are more likely to develop a more advanced cancer which can be fatal.
