As the Senate considers the Supreme Court nomination of federal judge John Roberts, a Senate Republican leader says the fact Roberts' wife's performs free legal work for an anti-abortion group shouldn't be an issue.

Pennsylvania's Rick Santorum tells NBC he doesn't think a wife's activities would have any impact on what a judge is going to do. Santorum also notes that he and his wife have opinions that differ at times and says he expects most couples are the same way. Santorum an outspoken opponent to abortion.

Jane Roberts is a partner with the law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, where she specializes in communications and technology law. She also does free legal work for the group Feminists for Life.
