Terri Schindler Schiavo's parents have asked Florida's Second District Court of Appeals to grant their daughter a divorce from her husband, Michael
Schiavo. They charge him with a conflict of interest based on alleged adultery. Circuit Judge George Greer, refused to accept any new filings in the
case that are unrelated to plans for Terri's death because, 11 other motions had been filed Monday.
Terri Schiavo's parents asked a judge Monday to allow the severely brain-damaged woman to divorce her husband, accusing him of adultery and not
acting in his wife's best interests.
It was one of a flurry of 11 motions filed by Bob and Mary Schindler, who have less than three weeks to find a way to keep their daughter alive.
Michael Schiavo says his wife, who has spent 15 years in what doctors call a vegetative state, once told him she would never want to be kept alive
artificially. Her parents have fought his efforts but Pinellas Circuit Court Judge George Greer ruled that Schiavo can have her feeding tube removed
on March 18.

Wow 11 motions in one day, now that is a lot of motions, wonder why they did not include the kitchen sink while they were at it? I just knew
something like this was going to happen when the judge set the date for the March 18. All the judge did was give them more time for more appeals
knowing each appeal has to run its full course. Also I do believe in order to seek a divorce on her behalf they first would have to be appointed her
legal guardian, no doubt that was one of the other 11 motions filed on Monday.
I wonder what these parents would be doing if they had to be pay the entire attorney and medical fees on their own? My guess is they would drop their
opposition in a heartbeat, but I could be wrong.
This whole case has tuned into nothing more then a political case about the right to live, rather then the well being of the individual and it needs
