Depends: Plan b prevents implantation of a fertilized egg so that it passes without development, as do 80% of all fertilized eggs naturally. So it is not really an abortion. Note that evangelicals consider life to begin at conception - so who is the responsible party for those 80% spontaneously passed.

Did plan B delay ovulation date to a further date ? Thanks!
Sort of...: When Plan B blocks an ovulation, one cannot predict the next date that ovulation will occur, but cycles should normalize after another monthly cycle.
