Q&A

Was St. Thomas Aquinas wrong about when human life begins?

Question:

St.Thomas Aquinas didn&#039;t believe human life begins at conception. He taught that ensoulment doesn&#039;t occur until several weeks later (delayed animation). How does this square with current Catholic teaching against abortion from the time of conception?
