The parents of a severely brain-damaged Florida woman are appealing to her husband to file for divorce.

The attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents admits the couple is running out of legal options after yesterday's Supreme Court rejection of their appeal.

The lawyer is urging Michael Schiavo to, "please, please, please let them keep their daughter and just walk away."

Schiavo contends his wife wouldn't want to be kept alive with machines. His in-laws accuse him of wanting her dead so he can remarry.

The case is going back to a Florida Circuit Court on Friday. The presiding judge had previously granted Schiavo permission to have his wife's feeding tube removed.

Monday, the Supreme Court declined to resurrect a special Florida law passed to keep the woman alive.
