Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court’ s feminist icon, not only changed the law, she also transformed the roles of men and women in society, according to Linda Greenhouse, contributing writer and former Supreme Court Correspondent for The Times.

Ginsburg, the 86-year-old four-time cancer survivor, has resumed an active role in oral arguments and regularly asks whether the Supreme Court should even decide the legal issue before it, a frame that could limit the conservative majority' s power.

While Ginsburg's passing was mourned by many, some pro-life lawmakers viewed her death as a victory for their cause. On Friday, Georgia Republican Representative Doug Collins tweeted, "RIP to the more than 30 million babies that have been murdered during the decades that Ruth Bader Ginsburg defended pro-abortion laws. With @realDonald Trump nominating a replacement that values human life, generations of unborn children have a chance to live."

Some Republicans are hoping that President Trump's next appointee to the U.S. Supreme Court will be instrumental in overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision which allowed women legal access to abortions. Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren said Monday that Democrats should wait until after the election to fill Ginsburg's vacant seat.

"This is about women's health care," Warren told Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. "This is about women's ability to make a decision over their own bodies."

President Trump promised his next nominee for the Supreme Court would be a woman whose name he would "probably" announce on Saturday.
