What exactly is meant by "hands that shed innocent blood"?

The scripture that says "hands that shed innocent blood" What exactly is hands that shed innocent blood mean like abortion and murdering someone?
Is shedding innocent b blood the same as turning off life support from someone who is terminal and doctors turned them to comfort care? Can any of this be forgiven ?

Thanks Carolyn

Proverbs 6:17

ESV - 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.
