As I mentioned in the other thread, I did a little Googling and found the phrase to mean slightly different things to different people. But it tended to mean "justified killing" or "justified murder". So the sacrifice concerns somebody actively slaying someone under very specific circumstances.

By contrast, it sounds like what you are describing is someone dying due to someone else's inaction. Is that what you are referring to by a "moral sacrifice"?
Yes, It could mean either, I believe, but I am thinking more sacrificing your morals for the greater good. for instance allowing 1 person to suffer or die, in order to save many from the same fate, even though you feel it is morally wrong to stand by and let even one person die under any circumstances.
