The justice's recent fall has once again sparked concerns for her health and worries about the prospect that the Supreme Court could tilt even further to the right.

Some Americans jokingly offered to make a supreme sacrifice for Ruth Bader Ginsburg after news broke that the 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice fractured three ribs after she fell in her office on Wednesday night.

Actress Alyssa Milano, 45, was one of the ones reacting to the news online, writing: 'Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. She also battled cancer twice and got a stent in 2014 to open a blocked artery.

As a presidential candidate, Trump responded to her public criticism of him by calling on her to resign, tweeting that her "mind is shot".

The injury means she will not be present for Justice Brett Kavanaugh's investiture after he survived sexual assault claims.

Valerie Jarrett called Ginsburg "a true force of nature" and wished her a speedy recovery:Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) said he was keeping Ginsburg in his thoughts.

Ginsburg was the second woman to be named to the nation's highest court.

"I sincerely hope that Justice Ginsburg heals from this fall". "I'm now 85", she said in July, according to CNN. "My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years".

Justice Ginsburg previously fractured ribs in a fall back in 2012.

Another said: "I love how every person under the age of 30 on Twitter is now offering #RuthBaderGinsburg their ribs and any other internal organ she might need".

Another Twitter user wrote: "Dear sweet Jesus, please PLEASE heal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg". Now that President Trump sits in the oval office and Republicans control the Senate, Ginsburg will likely stay on until well past 2020.
