Here's an excerpt from The Gospel for the Hopeless, an interview with John Barros from the November issue of Tabletalk:

Tabletalk: What is the most common misconception evangelical Christians have about men and women who procure abortions?

John Barros: That they don't know what they're doing. God has written His law on everyone's heart. That's why they're so angry to find us here. Second Timothy 2:25–26 says, "In humility [correct] those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will" (NKJV). People come in knowing what they're doing, yet are spiritually blind, caught in a trap laid by the devil.

Baby sacrifice has been with us throughout history. There's a demonic battle that has gone on since the days of Baal worship. Ephesians 6:12 says, "We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places." We come with the only answer to spiritual blindness: the gospel (Rom. 1:16). The Lord in His grace goes to the "gates of hell," calling them to repentance. People respond to this almost every day.
