Q&A

Did St. Thomas Aquinas believe ensoulment occurred 40 or 80 days after conception, making abortion permissible until then?

Question:

Did Aquinas say a baby has no soul until 40 days (for<br /> a boy) or 80 days (for a girl) after conception, so abortion is okay before those times?<br /> <br />
