With their legal options almost gone, the parents of a brain-damaged Florida woman began a campaign of public protests and political pressure on Wednesday to keep their daughter alive.
Theresa Schiavo's parents, Robert and Mary Schindler, have been engaged in a long-running legal battle with her husband, Michael Schiavo, since a 1990 heart attack left her in what some doctors say is a persistent vegetative state.

More from Reuters:
Michael Schiavo says his wife would not want to live in her condition and wants legal permission to remove the feeding tube that is keeping her alive. The Schindlers say their daughter, 41, responds to them and might improve with treatment.
The legal ruling which blocked the removal of Terri's feeding tube is due to expire next week Tuesday on February 22. Terri's parents the Schindlers are asking all available assistance in keeping their daughter alive, and have even asked Randall Terry, who is the founder of the pro-life group Operation Rescue to help lead the efforts on their behalf to save their daughter.
"We will not rest until we save Terri from starvation. This is not someone who is brain-dead," Randall Terry said at a news conference with Robert Schindler. "This guy (Michael Schiavo) is a monster. The gloves are coming off," Terry said.
He seems pretty serious about this as well. Randall Terry has been arrested in the past for blocking abortion clinics and plans to organize protests at the hospice where she is being cared for, at the state capital in Tallahassee as well as at the White House. He also plans on picketing Michael Schiavo's home as well as his workplace (I'm sure his boss is going to love that). If anybody is unable to make it to either Florida or Washington, D.C. they can contact Hyscience or Pro-Life Blogs on how your blog (aka web journal) can help make the difference. Keep praying as well...God may work a miracle in this.
