Ginsburg has said before that she has no plans of retiring anytime soon.

Directed by Mimi Leder, On the Basis of Sex follows the origin story of Bader Ginsburg, from becoming one of the first female students admitted into Harvard Law School and fighting landmark cases for gender parity to ascending the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court, breaking new ground, and overcoming obstacles set in place by a patriarchal society. Today, Supreme Court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg announced that the beloved jurist, and the person many Americans have pinned their last remaining hope to, has beaten cancer once again after surgery for two malignant lymph nodes last month.

With Gorsuch, protestations over the denial of Obama nominee Merrick Garland forced Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to implement the nuclear option-a simple 50-vote majority rather than a 60-vote, filibuster-proof super-majority.

At the same time, the Republican leaders must tread carefully while Ginsburg is still recovering from her recent cancer surgery in order to avoid sparking the righteous indignation of well-organized and well-funded liberal radicals, who spent weeks protesting in and around Capitol Hill last fall. In 1999, Ginsburg underwent surgery for colorectal cancer, and 10 years later she was treated for early stages of pancreatic cancer.

Ginsburg, 85, will continue to work from home and participate in all the cases she has missed, spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement. She said something very inappropriate during the campaign, but she apologized for it, ' he the president said in November. "She already had the rib fractures to deal with when she went into it". "But I'm confident she's not going anywhere".

If Donald Trump gets to replace Ginsburg, the Supreme Court would have six conservative judges and three liberals.

Nevertheless, Politico reports that the Trump administration is quietly urging conservative groups to prepare for her departure in the near future. In 2013, she told the New York Times, "As long as I can do the job full steam, and that, at my age, is not predictable".

In July, Ginsburg said she wants to stay on the bench past 2020. "My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years".

The White House is even working on a short-list of possible nominees to replace Ginsburg, who broke her 25-year streak when she began missing oral arguments on Monday.
