Well, first and foremost, the fact that you have identified the victim of abortion gives away the game... what the "products of conception" are is fundamental to the question of the legitimacy of abortion....
But why should the religious beliefs of atheists trump the religious beliefs of non-atheists? The assertion that atheism is not fundamentally religious is fallacious.
