Probably not: Asherman's syndrome usually involves a surgical procedure on the uterus during pregnancy such as D&C for abortion or miscarriage as well as csection. This can lead to adhesions in the lining of the uterus. Medical abortion usually avoids this but any pregnancy related issue may cause asherman's syndrome including a spontaneous miscarriage.
