Well, I'm not opposed to autopsies, certainly, and I've even witnessed a number of them. Plus carving up my own cadaver in cadaver lab.

So a medical Luddite, I am not.

But I am still (and always will be) of the belief that Janeway killed a sentient being against his wishes in order to bring back 2 friends who were killed in a transporter accident.

As the Doctor noted, that goes against medical ethics.

Even today, you cannot be forced to risk your life to give up a kidney or a slice of your liver to save another person.

And I daresay, most would *not* do so.
