"abortive birth control "
Oral birth control pills aren't a form of abortion as no conception ever takes place.
The pills don't prevent conception, they prevent the baby from implanting in the uterine wall. They make it so the baby can't live in it's mom's womb. They make the baby die. It is abortive.Originally posted by burlypie
"morning after" pills aren't abortive either, they prevent implantation. IN CA and WA they are available from many pharmacies directly from a trained pharmacist, w/o a prescription.
