Some clarification: Emergency Contraception is Contraception.

"Can emergency contraceptive pills cause an abortion?

No. Emergency contraceptive pills work to prevent pregnancy -- they cannot interrupt or disrupt an established pregnancy.[vi] In fact, emergency contraception reduces the need for abortion. The medical community defines pregnancy as beginning with the successful implantation of a fertilized egg.[vii] Emergency contraception works to prevent pregnancy before implantation. Emergency contraceptive pills will not harm a woman or her fetus if she is already pregnant."
