I wonder if you have been asked to not use the term "free agency" because the word "free" might connote to some people that one can use their agency "free" of any consequences. Sure, we have free use of our agency but must accept that any decision has consequences, good or bad; we are not "FREE" of those consequences. And, so I wonder if that's the reason... When I teach YW lessons, I make a conscious effort to not use that term.
