When I hear professing Christians say that since God is love He would never violate our free will (btw, a concept not found in the Bible)... my first thought is to ask:
"So you are troubled that God did for you what you couldn't do for yourself? Is Hell better than being saved? In everyday life we keep our children back from things that would harm them. Why? We do it because we love them. If this is true for our children, how much more God? So if God rescues us, in spite of our willful disobedience, it springs from His great mercy and love. But if His love toward us were based on a condition we have to meet, it would, by definition, be neither loving nor gracious."
It is better to reach important doctrinal positions by being biblically informed, rather than relying on unaided human reason or emotional appeals.
The Epistle to the Ephesians declares
"...even when we were dead in our trespasses, (He) made us alive (quickened us) together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—" - Eph 2:5
Now, God is not doing violence to our will any more than God violated your will when he gave you life, or gave you eyes, or ears. But He certainly rescued us regardless of our disposition at the time because, like any good parent, he knows better than we do what is good for us.
Some may raise the objection: but does not God say he does not want anyone to perish, but rather everyone to come to repentance?
