Good News About Roberts

Well... Mrs. John Roberts anyway. This Los Angeles Times article discusses Jane Robert's involvement with Feminists for Life. Some highlights from the article include but are not limited to:

While Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts Jr.'s views on abortion triggered intense debate on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, there is no mistaking where his wife stands: Jane Sullivan Roberts, a lawyer, is ardently against abortion.

A Roman Catholic like her husband, Jane Roberts has been deeply involved in the antiabortion movement. She provides her name, money and professional advice to a small Washington organization — Feminists for Life of America...

Jane Roberts was a volunteer member of Feminists for Life's board of directors from 1995 to 1999. She has provided legal assistance to the group and been recognized as a contributor who donated from $1,000 to $2,500."

A close friend characterized her as an "extremely, extremely devout Catholic" who had enjoyed her antiabortion advocacy.

Although if my experience with my 2 sets of parents has taught me anything (aside from make sure you understand what marriage is all about the first time around) it is that spouses do not always share the same viewpoint on all issues.
