John Roberts’ Wife and Attorney

Jane Roberts has been an attorney for Feminists for Life of America for more than a decade.

Mrs. Roberts, an attorney at the high-powered Washington law firm of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, currently serves as the pro bono legal counsel for the organization, which focuses on how abortion is a disservice to women.

From 1995 to 1999 she served as Executive Vice President on Feminist for Life’s board of directors.

“Jane is a brilliant attorney,” says FFL executive director Serrin Foster.

However, Foster told the Chicago Tribune that Jane Sullivan Roberts’ views don’t have a bearing on the Supreme Court nominee’s philosophy.

“In today’s world people know that spouses do different things,” Foster said. “He is not associated with FFL. Her work and what she does should stand alone.”
