Absolutely! Fate is the schematic set as a grid for our development, but free will is the action enacted along said grid. Consider:
A person is very unhappy with their life, they feel empty. Their profession doesn't match their calling. For example, a lawyer that was meant to be an artist. Fate is the set of variables that prompt an artistic lifestyle and need for expression - they become unhappy and likely endeavor into something artistic when they retire to fill their need. Free will is the action taken through their life (likely guided by societal constraints [need for money, unplanned children, etc...]) irrespective of their "calling".
If you subscribe to astrology, you can think of genetic/energetic makeup as "fate", the road the human vehicle drives on, whether or not they choose to drive off the road is their "free will". :)
No imperfect human being deserves the power to view a difference of opinion/belief as a mental disorder/illness. Paradigm shifts lead to drastic fundamental world views (yes there are many shifts waiting for us) and people engaging in the above narcissistic viewpoint can only say "ooops, sorry we killed your family brah, my bad hahahah" when said shifts occur.
Of course not! I mean, they should have the option as they have the right to do with their own bodies what they will, but I refuse to sit idly by while a generation of women develop sagging breasts due to their half-baked notions of liberty. Breasts must remain perky!
