Pregnancy tests used rabbits
Urine from the woman being tested was injected into a female rabbit, and the rabbit's
ovaries were examined a few days afterward.; It is a common misconception (no pun intended)
that the rabbit died only if the woman being tested was pregnant. In fact, all the rabbits died,
since the ovary exam required surgery, and nobody bothered to do this nonlethally.
