Upon news that Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was hospitalized for broken ribs after a fall in her court office, the internet was set ablaze with RBG fans offering themselves up as a sacrifice to take her place.

On Wednesday night, it was reported that Ginsburg had fallen in her office fracturing three ribs. At 85, broken ribs are no joke, so she was admitted to the hospital Thursday morning for “observation and treatment.”
With near perfect attendance on the Supreme Court bench, it’s pretty well known that this woman is and always has been a fighter. Because of this, she’s acquired quite the fanbase, labeled as a trailblazer for women in law and women’s rights in general.
If Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs ribs I have like dozens of them that I'm not using, let's do this

RBG fans are already coming up with clever ways to protect the Justice from future injury. She’s even received prayers and well-wishes from religious leaders around the country. People, who self-describe as non-religious, are even asking for any higher power to help out their beloved RBG.
It's like $83 at Wal-Mart.
I'll personally pay for it.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

One thing’s for sure, RBG is one tough cookie and we don’t expect this to slow her down muchâget well soon, Justice Ginsburg.
