North Dakota Sands For Life By Protecting Unborn Babies With Heartbeats

I guess in the Liberal mind when it comes to determining if something is alive or not, a heart beat does not constitute life. This is evident by a reaction to North Dakota's new legislation that will ban abortion at 6 weeks. From TPM:
The North Dakota Senate on Friday approved banning abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, sending what would be the most stringent abortion restrictions in the U.S. to the state’s Republican governor for his signature. The measure would ban most abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, something that can happen as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The House already approved the measure. Gov. Jack Dalrymple generally opposes abortion but has not said whether he will sign the bill into law. It’s one of several anti-abortion measures the state Legislature has weighed this session. The vote came with almost no debate in the Senate and after the same chamber approved another measure that would make North Dakota the first to ban abortions based on genetic defects such as Down syndrome. That measure would also ban abortion based on gender selection. The Guttmacher Institute, which tracks abortion laws throughout the country, says Pennsylvania, Arizona and Oklahoma already have such laws...
So Liberals, who supposedly have the market on social justice and compassion and outraged over saving the lives of handicapped and unwanted girls, so long as they have not been born yet. So what happens outside the womb? If the heat beat was present and it was morally justified to kill the baby before birth, all that has changed is the location, so why not kill the baby after birth. Remember, President Obama has been morally comfortable with doing just that. The only consistent position on the this is that at the moment of conception there is a human being, created in the image of God, that is intrinsically valuable. Otherwise evil like slavery and the Holocaust can be easily justified.
