It will die on its own if you remove it from the womb.
No. If you remove it from the womb, than you have killed it. If it dies of natural causes whilst still within the womb, then it is nobodies fault.

Also, don't play the "conception is life" card in an argument of why abortion SHOULD be legal, because of all the very many embreyos that fail to naturally implant themselves everyday. That is just as sily as using the "conception is life" argument for why abortion should be illegal.

I think we had previously agreed or concluded on this board that (according to taylors posulate anyway) life begins with brain activity. By the time there is brain activity, we are already talking about a late stage embreyo or even early stage fetus, that has long since implanted itself in the placenta, and is not small enough to fit in a syringe anymore.
