SCOTUS VS THE PEOPLE

I'm really having trouble sorting thru my thoughts on this: Why do courts get to decide on social issues like abortion, DOMA, gender identity, right-to-die. I mean -- if one is a conservative who believes in privacy & individual rights -- why would one care about another person's choices? 

We had a couple of kids (ages 21, 18, 15 -- one of whom is gay) over to the house for dinner a few weeks ago. I love discussing current events / issues with them. I broached the bathroom issue. In a nano second, the response was "everyone goes to the bathroom". Indeed, in some European countries there are bathrooms, period. Why shouldn't it be that simple for the rest of us?
