An abortifacient is a substance that induces abortion.
Oral contraceptives, when used at the appropriate doses, do not induce abortion.
They prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and change the nature of cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
