Summary: Explaining the meaning of the dignity of the human person and the extent of the right to life of the unborn, it shows why voluntary abortion lacks rational foundation. To do so, within the scope of interdisciplinarity, it relates Biology, Philosophy and Law in three parts: (1) the biological considerations about when and how a human individual reality arises; (2) the anthropological and ethical dimensions of the human being in the light of Thomas Aquinas's lessons; and (3) the legal protection given to the unborn in the Brazilian Penal Code and in the Claim of Breach of Fundamental Precept nº 54. With this, it contributes to the elucidation of a complex theme of contemporary bioethics.
