The Draize test is a test which is carried out by scientists. They drop shampoo into the eyes of innocent animals and see how they react. 

An example of when Animal Testing went wrong is when scientists created Thalidomide. They tested the drug on rabbits, but when it went into production, expectant mothers found it caused abnormalities in the foetus.

Animals are SENTIENT beings! (use this word/phrase in your exam!!!!)

Speciesism-human life is worth more than other life forms
