The Poor Get Shafted... Again

"As the economy falters and more people go without health insurance, low-income women in at least 20 states are being turned away or put on long waiting lists for free cancer screenings, according to the American Cancer Society's Cancer Action Network."
Notice how this is specifically "low-income women." Not the poor in general, but women. Why? Because of mammograms and Pap smears (I have always hated that term, by the way, it has such a distasteful sound to it). Of course, this is not the first incident of poor women being the first to go when the funding runs out.
