SO much pin-head dancing. I'll say it again: If two of your kids were fused into one being and started crowing about his rights...you wouldn't hesitate for one second to pull the plug and get your kids back.
This. I understand the moral and ethical issue with the whole Tuvix thing, but I don't think I'd be able to write Tuvok and Neelix off as dead if there was a way to get them back. They have the right to have their lives back.
You have to write off words like moral and ethical when you're talking about killing a living sentient being against his will to get them back. Tuvix had as much of a right to exist after the accident happened as Tuvok and Neelix when they came out of the womb.
