James Skoufis, the incumbent, voted for the Women’s Equality Act, including the 10th point (abortion expansion) in 2013 and 2014.

Richard Cocchiara provided the following statement to Rockland RTL: I cannot support point #10 of the Women’s Equality Act which would allow for partial birth abortion. As a father and husband, I firmly believe in women’s equality in the workforce but NOT partial birth abortion and as a result will not consider supporting the Women’s Equality Act until point #10 is removed.
