New motion for Terri

From LifeNews:

The parents of Terri Schiavo plan to present a new legal motion before a local judge who will decide whether Terri's estranged husband Michael is allowed to starve Terri to death.

Bob and Mary Schindler want cognitive ability tests to be conducted on their daughter to prove their contention that she is more aware than courts have acknowledged.

An attorney for the Schindlers will present a motion Monday before Circuit Court Judge Greer pointing to a new study showing that disabled people who are treated as if they have no awareness of their surroundings or that they cannot interact with others may be absorbing more than previously thought.

David Gibbs will ask Judge Greer to allow such testing to be used to assess Terri's brain activity before her feeding tube is removed. Michael could be allowed to remove the gastric tube providing Terri with food and water as soon as Tuesday.

At the hearing Monday, Gibbs will also ask Judge Greer to extend the stay that expires on February 22.

I think ole Judge Greer passed MCS a long, long time ago and is well into PVS by now. He'll deny the motion (he always does), but there may be enough political pressure to make him stay the murder until appeals are through.

There is a chance, I believe, of cutting through the Gordian knot here: offer to pay the ransom.

It's worth a shot. At least I believe that we are expected to make a bona fide offer.

It seems to me now that most of the money's been spent on lawyers, that he'd have given up if it were just about the money. He's wanting her kept quiet.
