The competition of the 2020 election is raging on!
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice and a fierce advocate and activist of justice and equality, passed away at age 87 on Friday, leaving her seat on the Supreme Court vacant for power-hungry beasts ahead of election…
Ginsburg took over the seat in 1993 and has now died due to “complications of metastatic pancreas cancer”, as per the Supreme Court statement.
The death of Justice Ginsburg is an unfortunate loss for the entire country, as she was a recognized feminist figure and fierce advocate of justice and equality!
Considering Donald Trump in command, an election inching closer, and Senator McConnell desperate to appoint someone in a Supreme Court vacancy in 2020, her death could negatively affect the future of the Supreme Court and on our country as a whole.
Soon after her death, Senator claimed that President Trump would nominate a candidate for the United States Senate.
Just days before her death, as her strength steadily faded, she dictated her final wish to her granddaughter Clara Spera, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Ginsburg served all her life to fight for women’s rights, gender equality and to protect abortion rights. Her seat is now empty, and Republicans are already eyeing to fill in space before the election. And to be honest, it is a bit concerning!
If you would like to see Ginsburg’s final wish to come true and protect her seat until the new president gets elected, make sure to call the U.S Capitol switchboard and connect with your Senator to share your concerns. You can ask directly from them to keep her seat vacant until after the 2020 presidential election.
If the lines are busy and voicemail boxes are all exhausted, the alternate way is to speak out and write an email to your Senator. You can find the email addresses here.
As a citizen, you have a responsibility to protect Bader Ginsburg’s seat until after the 2020 election. It’s crucial for the sake of the Justice and for the nation as a whole! So, be a responsible citizen and take action before a potential nomination is announced.
