Yes and no: You can have a procedure that interferes with a pregnancy that has started in the womb, which for many years was the only process using the abortion label. Today there are forms of birth control that prevent a fertilized egg from implanting and establishing a pregnancy.If you believe life begins at conception, this would also be considered an abortion.(morning after pills)
