Tom Abinanti has always been pro-choice. He served as pro-bono attorney for the Westchester Coalition for Legal Abortion for 18 years.

Assemblyman Abinanti twice voted for legislation to safeguard women’s reproductive health rights by making the Roe v. Wade US Supreme Court decision part of New York State law.


Then-County Legislator Abinanti had drafted legislation, for consideration by the Westchester County Board, to protect those who use health care facilities from harassment and intimidation. Some credit his legislation push as the stimulus for the State to pass statewide protections.
