There's all the moral difference in the world between an accident that was no one's fault and willfully murdering someone against their will.
Agreed.
And when you don't deconstruct Tuvix once you know how to restore Tuvok and Neelix, then you have murdered them. The questioning point is not the accident, but later when the ability to restore two people to the bodies that they in fact own. To not do so is not only murder, it is most likely against the law. The right to your own body is the argument and not who is murdering who.
That's the moral equivalent of saying it's murder not to harvest someone's organs against their will to save the lives of two terminally ill patients.
