Because she can have mine.

Although many recognized they couldn't actually donate a rib to the fallen justice, it didn't stop them from still making the offer.

"I hereby donate all of my ribs and organs to Ruth Bader Ginsburg", said journalist Lauren Duca.

Of course, not all were so ghoulish or overly dramatic.

It's too early for any word on Justice Ginsburg's path to recovery just yet - but definitely makes ya think.

"Don't be ghouls, people". She described him as her biggest supporter and "the only young man I dated who cared that I had a brain". "It should serve as an example to our country to stop demonizing those who you disagree with", said The Daily Wire's Kassy Dillon.

In her absence, the court was going ahead Thursday with a courtroom ceremony welcoming new Justice Kavanaugh.

She fell in her office Wednesday night, the Supreme Court's office of public information told reporters.

Ginsburg said in July she hopes to stay on the bench past 2020. The extent of Ginsburg's injury was not clear at press time.

In an attempt to make light of the situation, supporters joked the Democrats needed to wrap the justice in bubble wrap in an attempt to keep her healthy for the next two years.

Ginsburg's health has become the subject of much attention in recent years.

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

In November 2014, she underwent a heart procedure to have a stent placed in her right coronary artery, and in 2009, she was treated for early stages of pancreatic cancer.

Ginsburg has developed a reputation for her toughness and strength, both because of her rigorous personal training sessions in the Supreme Court exercise room, and because of the strides she's made for gender equality in the workplace.

President Donald Trump has appointed two justices to the court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, since taking office. She is the leader of the court's liberal wing.

By midmorning, Trump had not publicly commented on Ginsburg's hospitalization.
