Depends on how they quantify failure. If pregnancy=failure then yes, but say in the case of condoms if failure is defined as the condom breaking/leaking, then that is only true if you would get pregnant 100% of the time you have sex without that BC, which we know is not the case.
I don't know which is meant, so just throwing that out there
