How does having an IUD affect the abortion pill. I want a backup?

The pill Not needed: Iud is highly effective...For example: Mirena (levonorgestrel) touts over 99% effecacy! thus adding a morning-after pill is not needed..Benefit is next to nil..Ie..Adding a dollar to your million does not make much of a difference.

Can you answer, is an IUD like having constant abortions?
