The various forms of pharmaceutical intervention post-intercourse all have an abortifacient intervention capacity as one of their mechanisms of action. Many well-conducted studies have affirmed this point. Hence their use automatically carries with it the possibility that either a potential pregnancy will be imperiled, or an established pregnancy may be terminated. Therefore, none of these procedures should be tagged with the term 'contraceptive'. It is a grave misnomer. Rather, all forms of post-coital intervention are abortifacient to varying degrees. Recent research has greatly extended the timeframe during which various forms of the 'morning-after' pill can cause an abortion. Word manipulation is probably the area of greatest threat to embryonic human life. It is being defined out of existence.
