Because they aren't: Birth control pills, even morning after pills are not abortifacients. They are contraceptives. This is commonly misunderstood. An egg can be fertilized in the fallopian tube, if it does not implant it is not an abortion or miscarriage, it is a contracepted event, not a pregnancy.
