The parents of a child born with cystic fibrosis have filed a lawsuit against health care providers contending they would have terminated the pregnancy had they known of the genetic disorder.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle in a story published Sunday reports that Kerrie and Joe Evans of Gardiner filed the lawsuit in October in Gallatin County District Court, citing emotional distress and increased health care costs.

Named in the lawsuit are Livingston HealthCare, Bozeman OB/GYN and Shodair Children’s Hospital Department of Medical Genetics. Their attorney has asked that the case be dismissed.

Cystic fibrosis causes sticky mucus buildup in the lungs and other organs, leading to infections, digestive problems and death in young adulthood.

The typical life expectancy is about 37 years, according to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
