One way that is not ideal is to simply follow the DOI to its landing page. Most of the time the landing page will contain an abstract. I can imagine it would be possible to get reasonable extraction rates automatically. I can't say anything about whether systematic collection of abstracts directly from publishers' article landing pages would be within T&Cs and yada yada and what not.

Abstracts are part of the deposited metadata set. Let's discuss adding this to REST API, @kjw and @kmeddings.

Abstracts would be very useful! Is there any timeline for inclusion?

If you have a DOI use the API but append ".xml" to the end. This will return the full deposited XML which 'may' include an abstract.
example:
http://api.crossref.org/works/10.1109/TASC.2010.2088091.xml

Discovering which DOIs have abstracts needs to be on some to-do list.

Done. See, for example:

https://api.crossref.org/works?filter=has-abstract:true

Note however that abstracts are not commonly deposited yet.
