Re: Janeway in the cases of Quinn and Tuvix

Why aren't Tuvix's rights part of the picture to you?

I believe I have already said previously, Tuvix has the same rights as Tuvok and Neelix.

Is the argument that is it ok to murder 1 person to bring back 2? If so where is the line drawn, is it alright to murder 1million to if that'll bring back 1 million and 2? Where is the line drawn?

Are the two sides of the arguments :-

1.>Tuvix was entitled to the same rights to life as due all Federation Citizens.

2.>Tuvix was NOT entitled to the same rights to life as due all Federation Citizens.

The fact that Tuvix was created in a transporter accident at the expense of Neelix and Tuvok should not come into it. Because it was an accident. How can Tuvix be held responsible for how he came to be?
