Supreme Court nominee Judge John Roberts has made conflicting statements over the years on Roe v Wade - calling it "settled law" during his 2003 appellate court confirmation hearings but "wrongly decided" while he served as deputy solicitor general.
There's no doubt, however, where his wife comes down on the hotbutton issue of abortion.
"The role of his lawyer wife, Jane Sullivan Roberts, in Feminists for Life, a group dedicated to overturning Roe v. Wade, is . . . certain to raise liberal eyebrows," reports today's Boston Globe.
In fact, Mrs. Roberts once served as executive vice president for the pro-life group.
On the Feminists for Life web site, the group's mission statement explains:
"Feminists for Life recognizes that abortion is a reflection that our society has failed women. We are dedicated to systematically eliminating the root causes that drive women to abortion - primarily lack of practical resources and support - through holistic woman-centered solutions.
"Women deserve better than abortion," the mission statement continues.
"Feminists for Life continues the tradition of early American feminists such as Susan B. Anthony, who opposed abortion."
