Thursday morning, Ruth Bader Ginsburg — U.S. Supreme Court Justice and international feminist icon — was taken to the hospital in pain after falling in her office Wednesday night. The 85-year-old had broken three ribs on her left side and is being kept at the hospital for treatment and observation.

Immediately, the internet went into a whirlwind of panic over the Justice’s health. After the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court last month, the panel has been unbalanced in favour of more conservative politics and RBG is one of the key liberals left on the court. While the woman has been damn near indestructible, that doesn’t stop people from constantly worrying about her.

Plus, she’s the Notorious RBG. We need her. For feminism.

That’s why Twitter users came through with countless offers to donate ribs, organs and even their own lives to Ginsburg just to keep her healthy and doing her job.

While many were busy fixing the problem at hand (she only needs three, people) others were trying to concoct a plan for the future. How can we prevent this from happening again?

Two words: bubble wrap.

There were even more creative ideas out there too. Like replacing the Justice entirely with Kate McKinnon who impersonates her on Saturday Night Live. Kate does a good job, but we’re not sure she works as a permanent replacement for RBG. She probably has to have a deep and nuanced understanding of American law. Not sure that’s McKinnon’s strong suit.

Other fans of Justice Ginsburg sent messages of encouragement and wrote about how inspired they are by her strength.

Yes, the Justice is at an age where she won’t heal in the way she used to, but anyone who knows of RBG knows that the woman is STRONG. She’s bested cancer twice, she still does daily hour-long workouts — something she’s cited as one of the keys to her vitality — and she’s planning on at least another five years on the Supreme Court. You think she’s going to let a few broken ribs get in her way?

We think not.
