Unrepentant Old Hippie: wrong on the pill

JJ writes:

taken as prescribed, the Pill can't possibly act as an abortifacient because there is no egg released to be fertilized in the first place. The Pill does have "failsafe" effects to block sperm from getting in and prevent implantation just in case it isn't taken as prescribed and one slips past the goalie, but in most cases the failsafes are unnecessary.

If in "most" cases they are unnecessary then in "some" cases, they "are".

How can it be said that the Pill does not kill when it prevents a newly created human being from attaching to the womb?
