Today's death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg represents a devastating loss for Americans who saw the 87-year-old as an icon of women's rights and civil rights. According to The Atlantic: RGB

As a bulwark protecting abortion rights and a wide range of other progressive ideals on a conservative Supreme Court. The Brooklyn-born jurist became one of the nation's foremost advocates against gender discrimination as a lawyer for the ACLU, decades before President Bill Clinton appointed her to be the second woman to sit on the high court.

Remember this: RGB fought until the last day of her life. We owe it to her to put up a fight and not let McConnell get away with another SC Justice under Trump.
