For all practical purposes they were gone when Tuvix was created.
Ah-ha! So why is it abhorrent to end Tuvix's life, but not to end Tuvok and Neelix's lives? What gives Tuvix the right to exist at their expense?
Because Tuvok and Neelix dying was an accident. Tuvix dying was deliberate murder. All the difference in the world. You can argue that Tuvix is morally a coward for not willingly sacrificing himself. But I for one don't think being a coward warrants a death sentence.
