Supreme Court nominee John Roberts' views on women's rights is being called "very troubling."
Judith Appelbaum of the National Women's Law Center was reacting to some of Roberts' writings on documents released by the government.
They show Roberts disparaged state efforts to combat discrimination against women. He wondered whether "encouraging homemakers to become lawyers contributes to the common good."
The head of the National Partnership for Women and Families says the writings are "cause for grave concern." Debra Ness says Roberts' record "poses serious threats to the gains women have made."
