SCOTUS Nominee Roberts' Wife is a Feminist (of Sorts)
The FFL, according to their website, is dedicated "to systematically eliminating the root causes that drive women to abortion -- primarily lack of practical resources and support -- through holistic, woman-centered solutions."
Jane Roberts is herself an accomplished lawyer, and she continues to perform pro bono legal work for FFL. She is also a member of the board of governors of the John Carroll Society, a Catholic lay organization that sponsors the annual Washington archdiocesan Red Mass before the opening of the Supreme Court term.
John Roberts is, himself, a Catholic and a parishioner at Little Flower Parish in Bethesda, Maryland. Married in their forties John and Jane Roberts were unable to conceive children of their own, but have adopted a boy and a girl. "I think right now undoubtedly what John likes is spending time with Jack and Josie [his young children]," said Richard Lazarus, a Georgetown law professor and long-time friend of Roberts.
