Given a long speech about how noble it would be to sacrifice yourself to save two others that Tuvix would have no choice but to fall on his sword.
I disagree! I think picard would have advocated tuvix as his own being and capable of making his own choice. Im actually surprised Janeway went so hitler on him.

Shows the difference in maturity between her and picard (and even Sisko).. Her pompousness is one of the reasons I was never a big fan of voyager.

There were several episodes when I was like "Who does this !@#!@# think she is???"
Picard would have accepted Tuvix as his own being. Which is why he'd trump out the Picard Speech to persuade him to do so of his own violation instead of just forcibly performing the procedure. But if Tuvix did refuse, I think Picard would've reluctantly honored that.
