No, life isn't a numbers game. It's not legal, nor moral, to take a life to save another. If you can save 2 or three or 10, it's still not legal nor moral. And Janeway never made that argument.

We also don't put a value on a human life by killing someone less "useful" to save someone else we think more useful to society as a whole.
But Tuvix was a smarmy, irritating git. It was a win win situation getting rid of him.
Last time I checked, being a smarmy, irritating pit was not a crime mandating a death sentence.
