AYOTTE: I'm 47. I've been told since I was 40 to get a mammogram every single year. This new panel came out with recommendations that would say women between 40 and 49 they aren't recommending mammograms, and then women over 50 only every other year. So, essentially, you'll be denying women access to mammograms. And so, to me, this is about women who I know wouldn't be here but for having a mammogram in the age after 40. Every other year is not enough. Every year.
