Was St. Thomas Aquinas Wrong about When Human Life Begins?

Question:

St.Thomas Aquinas didn't believe human life begins at conception. He taught that ensoulment doesn't occur until several weeks later (delayed animation). How does this square with current Catholic teaching against abortion from the time of conception?
