Yes. The issue is: do we accept that some kind of community has a say about
that, or rather we believe that a given view on this point should be
generally enforced, notwithstanding different opinions of the people more
directly connected to the (prospective or actual) baby?

Needless to say, even if we accept the first option, we remain entitled to
debate where to fix such point as far our community is concerned.
