     3  § 570.17 Extradition of abortion providers.
     4    No  demand  for  the extradition of a person charged with providing an
     5  abortion shall be  recognized  by  the  governor  unless  the  executive
     6  authority  of  the  demanding  state  shall  allege  in writing that the
     7  accused was present in the demanding state at the time of the commission
     8  of the alleged crime, and that thereafter he, she or they fled from that
     9  state.
    10    § 2. Section 140.10 of the criminal procedure law is amended by adding
    11  a new subdivision 3-a to read as follows:

     4  with a valid, court-issued subpoena or warrant.
     5    §  4.  Section  3119 of the civil practice law and rules is amended by
     6  adding a new subdivision (g) to read as follows:
     7    (g)  Out-of-state  abortion  proceedings.  Notwithstanding  any  other
     8  provisions  of  this  section or any other law, no court or county clerk
     9  shall issue a subpoena under this section in connection with an  out-of-
    10  state  proceeding  relating to any abortion services or procedures which
    11  were legally performed in this state, unless such out-of-state  proceed-
    12  ing  (1)  sounds  in  tort  or  contract, or is based on statute, (2) is

    21  any mandate, writ or commission issued out of any court of record in any
    22  other state, territory, district or foreign  jurisdiction,  or  whenever
    23  upon  notice  or  agreement,  it  is required to take the testimony of a
    24  witness in the state, he or she may be compelled to appear  and  testify
    25  in  the  same  manner and by the same process as may be employed for the
    26  purpose of taking testimony in actions pending in the state. The supreme
    27  court or a county court shall make  any  appropriate  order  in  aid  of
    28  taking  such  a  deposition;  provided that no order may be issued under
    29  this section in connection with an out-of-state proceeding  relating  to
    30  any abortion services or procedures which were legally performed in this
    31  state,  unless  such  out-of-state  proceeding  (1)  sounds  in  tort or
    32  contract, or is based on statute, (2) is actionable, in an equivalent or
    33  similar manner, under the laws of this state, and (3) was brought by the
    34  patient who received reproductive healthcare,  or  the  patient's  legal
    35  representative.
    36    § 6. Severability. If any provision of this act, or any application of
    37  any  provision of this act, is held to be invalid, that shall not affect
    38  the validity or effectiveness of any other provision of  this  act,  any
    39  other  application  of any provision of this act, or any other provision
    40  of any law or code amended by this act.
    41    § 7. This act shall take effect immediately.
