Any statute, law, ordinance, rule or regulation to the contrary notwithstanding, "justifiable abortional acts," as defined in § 125.05 of the Penal Law of the State of New York, shall be performed only in a hospital duly licensed and accredited by the New York State Department of Health and having equipment and facilities acceptable to the State Hospital Review and Planning Council.
If it is found that any building or structure, except where authorized and permitted pursuant to § 165-1 hereof, is being utilized for and equipped with facilities for acts of abortion, the inspector of the Building Department shall notify the owner of the property or the owner's agent to cease and desist the use of said building. Such order and notice shall be in writing and may be served upon the person, firm or corporation to whom or to which it is directed either by delivering it personally to the person, firm or corporation or his, her or its agent or by posting the same upon a conspicuous portion of the structure where the act is being performed. Thereupon such use shall immediately be terminated.

Fine. Any person who shall violate any provision of this chapter or who fails to comply with any requirement thereof or with any notice, order or directive issued hereunder shall be guilty of a violation punishable as provided in Chapter 1, §§ 1-18 and 1-19 of this Code.
[Amended 10-1-1984 by L.L. No. 6-1984]
