Summary: This research belongs to the Law’s area, your objective is a reflection about the limits of fetal interventions. The method used was the qualitative, having like data source, bibliographic and jurisprudence. It was intended answer questions related to interventions, such as: What is the time to intervene? Can the woman refuse to perform the procedures? These questions don’t have a prompt response and require the researcher to rethink. Rethink cannot just rely on moral and ethical issues, but also in philosophical reflections and related to the law. There is the importance of this text, which is an innovative study, because although the theme is widely discussed in the medical sciences, it isn’t developed in the legal area. It was verified that fetal interventions deal with ethically difficult aspects, such as the debate on the beginning of life and the autonomy of the pregnant. In relation to the Brazilian jurisprudence, most cases refers to medical errors in procedures and diagnostics. Finally, it is concluded that fetal interventions have great relevance, because they are responsible for the survival and prevention of children’s misformations. Nevertheless, despite the highlighted importance, it still raises numerous debates and are still unresolved ethical and legal issues.
