Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Reason.com: “Mass. Governor's Non-Cooperation Order as to Enforcement of Other States' Abortion Laws”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Just issued yesterday; not sure how much practical significance this will have, but I thought I'd note it:

[1.] No Assistance from Executive Department Agencies. Except as required by the order of a court of competent jurisdiction, no executive department agency and no employee, appointee, officer, or other person acting on behalf of any executive department agency may provide any information or expend or use time, money, facilities, property, equipment, personnel or other resources in furtherance of any investigation or proceeding initiated in or by another State that seeks to impose civil or criminal liability or professional sanction upon a person or entity for

[a.] [i.] the provision, securing, or receiving of, or any inquiry concerning reproductive health care services that are legal in this Commonwealth; or

[ii.] any assistance given to any person or entity that relates to the provision, securing, receiving of, or any inquiry concerning reproductive health care services that are legal in this Commonwealth.

This restriction shall not apply to any investigation or proceeding where the conduct that is subject to potential liability under the investigation or proceeding initiated in or by the other State would be subject to civil or criminal liability or professional sanction under the laws of the Commonwealth if committed in this Commonwealth. Notwithstanding the general prohibition of this section, agencies and individuals acting on their behalf may provide information or assistance in connection with such an investigation or proceeding in response to the written request of a person who is the subject of such an investigation or proceeding.
