The 85-year-old woman, nicknamed RBG, was admitted "for observation and treatment" early on Thursday morning after her Wednesday fall because she experienced discomfort overnight. According to a statement from the Supreme Court, doctors admitted Ginsburg for further "observation and treatment". She broke two ribs in a 2012 fall, had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery, and was hospitalized due to a back reaction to medicine in 2009. Not only was Kavanaugh perceived as tipping the balance of views in the Supreme Court, but also he was appointed after allegations of sexual misconduct were put against him.

Leading this project, she successfully argued six landmark cases before the Supreme Court. And Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) suggested that she could take a break from her famous workout routine for just a bit:"We need you more than ever now", former Sen.

Ginsburg said in July she hopes to stay on the bench past 2020.

Of course, many liberals are concerned about Ginsburg's health.

That said, it would probably be healthy for her to resign. But if Ginsburg's history tells us anything, her injuries won't keep her away from work for long.

In the interview, she spoke about being close friends with the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia despite having different political views. "We can not allow one more Supreme Court justice to be nominated and get through the Senate by this president, or we'll lose that court for over a generation".

"I hereby donate all of my ribs and organs to Ruth Bader Ginsburg", said journalist Lauren Duca. Nevertheless, he was confirmed by the Senate.
