Brain Damaged Woman

Terri Schiavo's parents say she should have more medical tests to determine her level of brain activity.

Bob and Mary Schindler say new medical technology could better determine the condition of their severely brain-damaged daughter. And they'll ask a judge to delay the removal of her feeding tubes so they can get the tests done.

The Schindlers have been locked in a court battle for years with their son-in-law, Michael Schiavo, who wants to stop his wife's feedings and allow her to die. He says Terri would never have wanted to be kept alive artificially.

Her parents dispute that and believe she could get better with therapy.

An attorney for the family will ask a judge on Monday to extend a stay that expires Tuesday.
