If one has a right to self-determination and live their life as they see fit, Then they have a right to become or sell themselves into slavery.
I don't want to hear (or read) self-righteous moral arguments. Rather from secular and liberal (fukc political conservatism) perspective what is wrong with it?

I'm not sure that 'slavery is a choice. Servitude perhaps is a choice.

People seem to dedicate themselves to ideals, Nations, Religions, Other people in marriage, In ways others find slavish. There's been thralls, Serfs, Peasants in history, And cultures that found it normal/good.

I suppose there have even been cultures that thought slavery good. . . Though 'I'm glad my culture doesn't. Unless one get's over-semantic arguing about government, Social contracts, Capitalism.
