(UnitedVoice.com) – On September 18, America received the news that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died at age 87. As we mourn with the associate justice’s family, it leaves us to wonder: What’s next for the court?
Justice Ginsburg was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993 and served for nearly three decades. She was a staunch advocate of the Left during her time on the bench. And, the vacancy left on the court as a result of her death could change American policy’s projection for decades.
President Donald Trump now has the opportunity to appoint a third justice to the court. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said the POTUS’ nominee would get a floor vote.
The Senate and the nation mourn the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life.

If Trump can get a replacement confirmed for Justice Ginsburg’s seat, it’ll swing the Supreme Court to the Right. Conservatives will have an opportunity to solidify Second Amendment rights, possibly overturn Roe v. Wade, and ensure religious freedom for decades.
For now, however, we mourn with Justice Ginsburg’s loved ones.
