The idea of freedom is very popular in the west. That's why western spiritual people often believe that we somehow make the choice where we are born and in what conditions. Of course we have good conditions so it's popular to think in such directions. I'm sure that if you ask a non-western society, you'll get different explanations.
So who's right? Your beliefs are based on cultural upbringing.
