"Not exactly what I asked"
In response to Reply #19


here, you seem to like wiki:

Abortion is defined as the termination of pregnancy by the removal or expulsion from the uterus of a fetus or embryo prior to viability. An abortion can occur spontaneously, in which case it is usually called a miscarriage, or it can be purposely induced. The term abortion most commonly refers to the induced abortion of a human pregnancy.

Thus, devices which prevent implantation are NOT abortifacients. Such as IUDs. Zygotes are usually formed still in the Fallopian tubes, defined not to be 'the uterus' per se'. Hence also German usage 'Abtreibung' (driving forth ...).
Only if a fertilized egg, as a not-yet-implanted zygote is a human being can it be considered murder. Before science knew such details, there was no problem letting women stick little loops up their cervixes and whatnot. Not even the Jewish elders cared, nor christian prelates, and there was no special penalty for beating your wife unless she was gravid i.e. clearly had a developing fetus in her uterus as noticeable from the swelling of her belly, and/or as ascertainable as a child when passed out in her flows.
