LANSING—Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer on Monday released a statement on the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsburg died Friday at her home in Washington from complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer, according to the court. She was 87.

Whitmer shared the following statement on Ginsburg’s death:

“I am truly heartbroken at the news of Justice Ginsburg’s passing. Her intellect, her razor sharp wit, and her lifetime of service to our nation made her an inspiration to millions of Americans. I know there are a lot of women who are feeling worried right now about what this means for the future of our country. One thing I learned watching Justice Ginsburg’s fearless battles with cancer and injustice is that you never give up, and you never stop fighting for the values we hold dear as Americans. The best way to honor Justice Ginsburg’s memory is by making our voices heard at the ballot box this November. Register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and return it quickly. Let us turn our grief into action, let us choose hope over fear, and let us find the strength to build a stronger America for everyone.”
