Let me guess, you don't believe that kind of personal choice should be allowed?
And what if a man doesn't want to? Isn't that his choice?
You keep mentioning liberty and freedom, but you don't seem to understand what those words truly mean.
One could choose not to breathe, even permanently as by asphixiating himself, yet he cannot also live. If he wants to live he must breathe, and just so if we want to be free we must defend ourselves.
