Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell at her office in the Supreme Court Building late Wed night.
According to the BBC…
US Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs after a fall on Wednesday, the court says.
The fall happened in her office at the Supreme Court in Washington.
Ms Ginsburg, 85, went home but was in discomfort and went to George Washington University hospital on Thursday morning, a statement said.
Tests showed that she had fractured three ribs on her left side and she has been admitted for observation and treatment.
Ginsburg and her health have been the focus of speculation since the election of Donald Trump and with the death of Antonin Scalia and the retirement of Anthony Kennedy and Trump picking those replacements, this fall is only going to ramp up concern.
We should all be concerned.
While I don’t agree with Justice Ginsburg and her legal views when I read them and on occasion understand them, she has been a tireless advocate for her opinions and views. In The United States of America I grew up in that was something to be celebrated, not scorned at every turn.
The very first thing that I hope all Americans from the President on down will do today is to pray for those that have been killed in California and to also include Justice Ginsburg in those prayers for a successful recovery.
I’m sure one of her closest friends on the court, Antonin Scalia if he were here, would be the first person leading the charge for prayers to the Almighty for her return to work healthy.
We should follow his example.
