I wonder myself if this has been proven. You have to take into consideration the fact that about 50 per cent of fertilized eggs fail to implant (when women are not on the pill). I also read somewhere that the pill suppresses ovulation around 95 per cent of the time. If a woman on the pill had a fertilized egg that failed to implant, she probably wouldn't know the difference. If she could somehow tell that this had happened, she wouldn't know whether or not the same thing would have happened if she had NOT been on the pill.
If you don't have any knowledge that something has happened, how can you be guilty of that? It's almost like saying that there is a slim chance that my toddler will die in a car accident if I take her for a ride in the car, therefore I should never take my toddler for a ride in a car. However, if your toddler died in a car accident, at least you would know that it happened!
But by taking the pill, you are changing the lining on purpose so that it has less of a chance to implant. So even if you ovulate while on the pill and the embryo implants, aren't you somewhat culpable for trying to make implantation fail?
It's kind of like shooting a gun at someone, and having it miss, and saying you've done nothing wrong because you failed to hit your target.
