Bader Ginsburg's health is extremely important.
She is one of the strongest liberal voices on the Supreme Court, and has spent her legal career advocating for gender equality and women's rights.

So it's safe to say that American liberals want justices like Bader Ginsburg, who were nominated by Democrat presidents, to stick around.

There are concerns that if Trump remains in office for a second term and is able to replace more Democrat-appointed justices, his administration may be able to overturn landmark rulings like Roe v. Wade, which guarantees American people access to abortion.

A spokesperson for the Supreme Court confirmed that Bader Ginsburg officiated at the wedding over the weekend.
Some Twitter users questioned the photo's authenticity, but court spokesperson Kathy Arberg confirmed that it's real.
She added that the bride, Barb Solish, and groom, Danny Kazin are Bader Ginsburg's family friends. Solish works at the National Alliance on Mental Illness, while her husband works for the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee.
Solish defended her photo by tweeting "don't worry, we tested negative!".
But people weren't exactly reassured.
Bader Ginsberg has not yet been declared free from her liver cancer, and her continuation as a Supreme Court justice is of supreme importance.
