working with and for the law as a way to keep our society both ordered and free. >> announcer: celebrating ruth bader ginsburg, a judicial icon. now reporting, chief anchor george stephanopoulos. good morning, and welcome to our coverage of the celebration of supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg. that is the scene at the supreme court this morning. you see the plaza and the supreme court steps lined by the -- the honorary pallbearers who also served as clerks to justice ruth bader ginsburg. her family and friends are also gathered there at the supreme court today as we prepare to see her casket roll up to the supreme court where she will lie in repose for the next two days, an honor accorded to justices going back to salmon chase back in the 1800s. terry moran, we're seeing the pallbearers walk down the
6:28 am
stairs. huge crowd across the street, and ever since the word broke on friday night, you've seen people come to pay their respects. >> reporter: george, it's been remarkable and beautiful and solemn, and really in a way heroes tribute the kind of thing we've seen for the great stmen . ruth bader ginsburg touched so many people, and to see the memorial here grow over the past several days as people brought flowers and candles, wrote cards and signs, and then the sidewalk and the plaza -- this vast plaza, not up on the steps, but here on the sidewalk covered in chalk messages and hebrew and english from all over the world, and so many children -- i brought my own kids here -- coming because they're learning about what ruth bader ginsburg has done for this country for equality, the principle of equality in their schools. there was -- there was sadness, but there was also a great deal of pride.
6:29 am
concern among those who are of the liberal persuasion, but they're worried about who will replace her, and it was more about gratitude than anything else, and here in that solemn moment, you can feel that as well. >> you can see the hearse approaching the steps of the supreme court. the casket will be taken up the steps. there will be a short, solemn, private ceremony. chief justice john roberts expected to speak. also, a rabbi at the congregation of washington, d.c., her husband served as a law clerk. kate shaw as a clerk on the supreme court, and i remember what justice sutor said. she achieved greatness before she became a great justice. >> reporter: we're reflecting on her legacy not just as a justice
6:30 am
before she ever ascended to the bench. in the 1970s, she litigated cases that changed the meaning of the constitution. before she started litigating these cases, it wasn't what equality guarantees, applied to women at all, and she systematically changed that understanding by convincing the 9th court to include women in the 14th amendment of the constitution, and years later, she ends up on the d.c. circuit, and then on the supreme court continuing to place her mark on the law, but, you know, it's her life in its entirety both as a lawyer and as a justice, and then more recently really as an american icon that i think everyone is really coming together to honor today. >> and kate, we're seeing her pallbearers now approach the casket. when president clinton appointed her back in 1993, one of her great selling points was that she was someone he believed could work with the republicans, with the conservatives on the court, and she did that, but she also became known later in her
6:31 am
career for those fierce dissents. >> she somehow managed to do both, right? to forge across ideological alliances. her friendship with justice scalia was as real and deep as any friendship. i talked to scalia clerks who are devastated by this because justice ginsburg meant a great deal to them just because of her relationship with justice scalia. so that was real, and yet they disagreed also as fiercely as you can imagine, and so her dissents, i think they were respectful, but they were powerful and many in ways, that's what catapulted her into the public view over the last decade or so, but always on the substance, always on the merit, and always in a way that allowed her to retain, you know, good, warm even relationships with her fiercest at ved adversarieadve >> the casket now being taken up the steps of the supreme court. all eight justices of the supreme court will be there today to honor their colleague.
6:32 am
jon karl, first time all eight justices together since this pandemic struck. >> reporter: yeah. it's been a strange time for all of us, a strange time for the supreme court, working virtually. i have to say one thing. one thing that strikes me about my m my memories of ruth bader ginsburg was attending hearings here at the supreme court which i had a chance to do from time to time. her questioning, she was often the first to jump in. she had absolutely no patience for long preambles by counsel for either side of a case. she would jump in, sometimes interrupt in the first sentence or two of a lawyer making a case. she read all the material. she knew what was at stake. she wanted to get right to the meat of the matter. >> in her honor today, theha of the justices dpe in black wool crepe as are the benches in front of it.
6:33 am
those are supreme court police actually carrying the casket. her clerks lining the way, all in masks at this time of covid. as the casket makes it up the steps, it will be placed on the lincoln kettle, another american tradition. of course, we saw that earlier this summer when congressman john lewis, the great civil rights hero lay in state at the u.s. capitol. courtars.
6:34 am
as i said, appointed by bill clinton back in 1993. terry moran, you see those clerks lining the steps. what a relationship between a justice and their clerks. >> reporter: kate can speak to this. it's so special, those of us who covered the court. sometimes they're almost jealous. it's part hard work. it it's part a seminar, and it's part a personal relationship that many of them helps define their lives, and ruth bader ginsburg and other justices tasking master, and speaking to former clerks, you had to know
6:35 am
the brief just as well as she did, and she was tough, but always a very kind person. she managed to combine in all of her -- in all of her life, really grace and steel. i remembered a time, oh, more than a decade ago that she came to the court after battling cancer which she did for 20 years. she showed up in the press room which the justices don't often do. it w an awkward greeting. somebody asked, how are you feeling, justice ginsburg? she paused. she's a woman who deployed silence. she gathered a moment to her, and she said in that quiet voice, very determined, i'm not going anywhere. we laughed. shdidn.vega s o a through this year despite battling cancer not once, but at least twice. >> reporter: she did, and -- and it was a fight, and there were many nervous times over the course of that, and, you know, there are now some democrats in the wake of her passing who have
6:36 am
been asking in retrospect whether with her illnesses that she faced over the course of these years, she perhaps should have stepped down sooner given where we are with the politics in our country right now, and the battle that is about to be waged on capitol hill for her replacement, but as anybody who has covered this justice, as anybody who has met and spoke with her or listened to her interviews knows no one was going to tell ruth bader ginsburg what to do when it came to her job, when she should do it or how long she should stay in that seat. certainly it was exactly what she did. she stayed until the very end. >> what an example she set as you see the lincoln kettle falk. the justices behind her. chief justice john roberts will speak. the family of justice ginsburg there as well.
6:37 am
she was a widow. her husband, martin ginsburg, also a lawyer. they met before law school. deb roberts whar, what a love s >> reporter: what a love story indeed, george. i have to say in spite of her towering intellect and trailblazing spirit, so many admired her of her storybook of a marriage. 56 years she was married, and she had a partnership when at that time it wasn't very common. he just adored her. said she was a terrible cook, so he learned to become a cook and he advocated for her to become on the court. she said he was the first man who cared that she had a brain. a real love story, and something a seminar should be taught about. what a couple, and what a marriage. >> you see justice stephen breyer there, also appointed by bill clinton. justice john roberts.
6:38 am
alana kagan, and justice alito. her family now paying their respects. her daughter, jane ginsburg. her son james and their families. >> you may be seated. >> this is rabbi lauren holzblatt who will lead the ceremony.
6:39 am
half the ginsburg family seated so far. notice the woman in the re red kerchief there in the front row. it was she who dictated her final wish to the public that she be replaced by the president elected on november 3rd. i believe that is justice sotomayor wearing the full face shield there. very small ceremony. there will be a larger memorial
6:40 am
in the capitol on friday morning where justice ginsburg will lie in state. the first woman in the united states history to lie in state in the u.s. capitol. rosa parks was given the honor of lying in repose. justice ginsburg will be the first woman to officially lie in state. >> you may be seated.

6:43 am
country mourns with you and sends you our deepest love and comfort. to be born into a world that does not see you, that does not believe in your potential, that does not give you a path for opportunity, or a clear path for education and despite this, to be able to see beyond the world you are in to imagine that something can be different, that is the job of a prophet. it is the rare prophet who not only imagines a new world, but also makes that new wld a reality in her lifetime. this was the brilliance and vision of justice ruth bader ginsburg. the torah is relentless in reminding and instructing and commanding that we never forget those who live in the shadows, .
6:44 am
36 times we are taught that we must never forget the stranger. 12 times we are told to care for the widow, and the orphan. this is one of the most important commandments of the torah. it is the torah's call to action. and it is also the promise written into our constitution. as justice ginsburg said and i quote, think back to 1787. who were we the people? they certainly weren't women. they surely weren't people held in human bondage. the genius of our constitution is that now over more than 200 sometimes turbulent years, that we has expanded and expanded.
6:45 am
this was justice ginsburg's life's work, to insist that the constitution deliver on its promise that we the people would include o tt work i as an advocate arguing six times before this court for equal treatment for women and men, as a judge on the d.c. circuit and as a justice on this court. and as a path-marking role model to women and girls all all ages who now know that no office is out of reach for their dreams whether that is to serve in the highest court of our land or closer to home for me as the rabbi of their community. nothing could stop justice ginsburg's unflagging devotion

bond of life. may she rest in peace and let us say amen. >> thank you, rabbi holtzblatt for those compelling words. jane, jim, the entire ginsburg family, on behalf of all the justices, the spouses of the justices, and the entire supreme court family, ierheartft othe loss of ruth bader gibu th lselyared, but we know that it falls most heavily on the family. justice ginsburg's life was one of the many versions of the american dream.
6:49 am
her father was an immigrant from odessa. her mother was born four months after her family arrived from poland. her mother later worked as a bookkeeper in brooklyn. ruth used to ask, what is the difference between a bookkeeper in brooklyn and a supreme court justice? her answer, one generation. it has been said that ruth wanted to be an opera virtuoso, but became a rock star instead, but she chose the law, subjected to discrimination in law school and the job market because she was a woman. ruth would grow to become the leading advocate fighting such discrimination in court. she was not an opera star, but she found her stage right behind me in our courtroom. there she won famous victories that helped move our nation closer to equal justice under law to the extent that women are
6:50 am
now a majority in law schools, not simply a handful. later she became a star on the bench where she sat for 27 years. her 483 majority and dissenting opinions will stand for decades. the unaffected grace in court and in our conference room was soft, but when she spoke, people listened. among the words that best describe ruth, tough, brave, a fighter, a winner, but also thoughtful, careful, compassionate, honest. when it came to opera, insightful, passionate. when it came to sports, clueless. justice ginsburg had many virtues of her own, but she also unavoidably promoted one
6:51 am
particular one, humility in others. for example, on more than a few occasions, someone would approach or call me and describe some upcoming occasion or event that was important to them, and i knew what was coming. could i come and speak? but no, instead could i pass along an invitation to justice ginsburg and put in a good word? many of you have seen the famous picture of justice scalia and justice ginsburg riding atop an elephant in india. it captured so much of ruth. there she was doing somethingun had in law school where she was not only one of the few women, but a new mother to boot. and in the photograph, she is riding with a dear friend, a photo that either was poised to push the other off.
6:52 am
for many years, of course, ruth. she met each of those challenges with a combination of candid assessment and fierce determination. in doing so, she encouraged others who have their own battles with illness, including employees here in the court, and she emerged victorious time and again against all odds, but finally the odds won out, and now ruth has left us. i mentioned at the outset that ruth's passing weighed most heavily on her family, and that is true, but the court was her family too. this building was her home too. of course, she will live on in what she did to improve the law and the lives of all of us, and yet still ruth is gone, and we grieve. let us have a moment of silence for reflection.
6:53 am
may she rest in peace. >> and that concludes the memorial ceremony for justice ruth bader ginsburg. you see the supreme court justices and their families now leaving. justice ginsburg's family will follow behind. kate shaw, we heard that tribute from the chief justice there, a
6:54 am
tribute to ruth bader ginsburg's career, to ruth bader ginsburg as a person. warm, intimate words. he reminded everyone that the court was her family too, and it's a reminder to all of us just how different from all other institutions is supreme court is. >> it's a poignant message right now in the supreme court in the center of the discourse, but, you know, i think that the chief justice sort of channeled something that ginsburg has famously said years ago in an interview. how would you like to be remembered? she said, i would like to be remembered as someone who used what talent she had to make the world a little bit better. she did more than make the world just a little bit better, but as the chief justice, she w said, a humble person. we think of what to do in the wake of the loss of justice ginsburg, you know, making the world a little bit better, improving the institutions around us, improving our politics. like, those are really powerful legacies and, you know, if there was a message in what the chief
6:55 am
justice said, maybe that is that message. >> we see the flag flying at half-staff there outside the supreme court just across the united states capitol. our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce is there. mary, on friday, justice ginsburg will be remembered at the capitol, and then another huge fight begins. >> reporter: and jorgeorge, the split screen that we have seen this week has been remarkable. while the nation comes together to mourn the loss of this truly incredible life, here across the street at the capitol, we are in the midst of this bitterly partisan fight i think for ruth bader ginsburg's supporters and admirers on the left. especially many women across this country, it has been a week of anguish and also outrage in the fight to fill her seat. it has been less than a week since her passing and it seems all but certain that republicans will have the votes to fill her seat. despite taking opposition in the
6:56 am
fight to fill antonin scalia's seat, in the run up to that election, republicans saying given the balance of power, this is a different situation. we could be headed towards hearings here. president trump making it known he wants seats filled and making the democrats effectively powerless to stop it. >> today, the focus on ruth bader ginsburg as chief justice roberts said. her life, one of many versions of the american dream. her career dedicated to bringing us closer to equal opportunity for all. we're going to return now to our regular programming. for many of you, that's "good morning america." >> annnc: this has been a a very beautiful ceremony i think this morning. >> i 100% agree. it was so nice hearing from chief justice john roberts, describing it as a warm tribute
6:57 am
and i totally concur. it was of course the unfair money bail system. he, accused of rape. while he, accused of stealing $5. the stanford rapist could afford bail; got out the same day. the senior citizen could not; forced to wait in jail nearly a year. voting yes on prop 25 ends this failed system, replacing it with one based on public safety. because the size of your wallet shouldn't determine whether or not you're in jail.
6:58 am
