Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Gravely Ill Yet Again, Undergoing Pancreatic Cancer Treatment
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is suffering from pancreatic cancer and finished treatment for a tumor that was found in her pancreas last month, the Supreme Court announced in an official statement earlier today.
JUST IN: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has completed radiation treatment to treat tumor on pancreas, Supreme Court says.

“The Justice tolerated treatment well,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement. “She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule.”
“There is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” Arberg added.
The SCOTUS maintains that the 86-year-old woman is in good health despite repeated serious health complications for the liberal-leaning justice who Democrats fear will ultimately be replaced by President Donald Trump, giving the high court a conservative majority to rule for generations to come.
“Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans,” Arberg said. “No further treatment is needed at this time.”
Ginsburg had previously been treated for lung cancer late last year, which caused a long public hiatus that resulted in speculation that she had died.
“According to the thoracic surgeon Valerie Rusch, both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation. Post-surgery, there was no evidence of any remaining disease. Scans performed before surgery indicated no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Currently, no further treatment is planned. Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days,” the SCOTUS said in a press release from Dec. 2018.
That cancer was discovered after Ginsburg suffered a fall that resulted in several of her ribs being fractured the month before.
Regardless of spin attempts from SCOTUS and the mainstream media, it is clear that Ginsburg’s health is rapidly waning. Perhaps it would be for the best if this feminist icon spent her final days surrounded by loving family rather than on working the bench.
This makes it Ginsburg’s fourth bout with cancer, and second bout with pancreatic cancer, going back to the late 1990s.
