I will try to rephrase the question, can a contact shot be justified, both legally, and ethically ?
I think the answer is yes.

If anything, justification becomes more difficult as the distance grows because increasing distance increases the chances of being able to withdraw safely and reduces or even eliminates some types of threats.

I'm not going to go so far as to say that there is no set of circumstances where a contact shot might be less justifiable from an ethical or legal standpoint, but off the top of my head I can't think of any.

The reasons that I would avoid a contact shot, if possible, have to do with tactics and weapon limitations, not with legality or ethics.
