It is my understanding that this prevention of the fertilized egg from implanting Is the reason it is considered abortive. If the egg has been fertilized life has begun (from the perspective of most pro life supporters). Of course, there are those now saying that these pills do not prevent implantation, but delay ovulation. The reading I did left me confused. Does the medical community not know how this medication works? Bottom line, if there is a chance of preventing implantation after the egg is fertilized it would be considered abortive.
