    about the meaning of "to make" in this sentence

    "It's her call to make. That we should let her do it her way."

    Does "to make" here has a meaning or is it simply used here to emphasize that it's her own decision?

    I've seen similar structures like:

    It's your job to do. / It's your life to live.

    I think it's emphasising that it's her decision.
