Which I can’t disagree with. But you’re not asking the follow up questions of “why do they value that” and “do they really have a choice?”
Only one of those questions matters, though, as far as policy is concerned, as long as freedom to self-determine our fate is concerned.
The former question is of academic interest of course, but the answer does not affect policy in a free society.
The latter, question is a matter of rights, and thus is important. Although I’d argue that for at least the last fifty years, the answer to the question is “yes”.
