Population Institute Statement on the Death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

We are heartbroken by the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Over her long career she has left an indelible legacy of making this country fairer and more equal for all.

Justice Ginsburg fought for gender equality, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, and for reproductive rights. She wrote powerful opinions, perhaps none more so then those that began with “I dissent”.

She was a powerful advocate for justice and will be deeply missed on and off the Court. She may be replaced on the Supreme Court, but she will not be replaced in our hearts. Her tireless advocacy on behalf of women has inspired millions, giving birth to a whole new generation of advocates, who will carry on her fight for equality and justice. We must preserve her legacy by continuing to fight for equal and reproductive rights for all.
