"It simply reinforces what we believe: that a woman who is pregnant should have the right to decide what to do about pregnancy," she said. Kansas Attorney. Gei -al Curt Schneider said he is uncertain how the decision affects his state, but he said the effect probably will not be large. "I'm not sure it affirms what Kansas has been doing, because I'm not sure what procedures doctors have gone through," Schneider said. "It's going to be a while before we know what the impact's going to be, but I don't think it's going to be of any great magnitude to the laws we have at the present time." Missouri Attorney General John Danforth, who argued the case before the Supreme Court March 23, said he was disappointed with the ruling and the fact there is no further appeal possible. He said only a constitutional amendment could change the decision. Danforth said the case concerned the primary question of abortion itself and the rights of the unborn would have to be decided by constitutional constitutional amendment. Dr. Harry Jorias, chairman of the Gynecology and Obstetrics Department at the University of Kansas Medical Center, said he was pleased the restrictive parts of the law were deleted because it was legislative interference into the medical profession. However, he said he expects no major changes in general medical practices.
