Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) spoke in opposition to Judge Robert Bork’s nomination saying that “Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids, school children could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is-and is often the only-protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy.”

Senators also debated reflagging oil tankers and using the US Navy in the Gulf of Arabia.
