Huck feels that he has to attempt to save the lives of the murderers simply because they are human beings......... he doesn't stop to think about the things they've done......... his code of morality is to do the right thing. This is the same outlook he has on his commitment to Jim; Huck says that if helping Jim means he'll go to hell........... well, then he'll go to hell.
