Same-sex marriage and abortion became legal in Northern Ireland at midnight last night, despite a last minute attempt to block the change. 

The change in legislation brings the entirety of the United Kingdom into line and marks a momentous day for women and the LGBTQ+ community.

The move comes after MPs voted to extend LGBT and abortion legislation to Northern Ireland.

Many of Northern Ireland’s residents have remarked on the change being “long overdue” and a “historic leap for humans rights”.

Brighton Pavilion’s MP, Caroline Lucas, has shown support for Northern Ireland’s new legislation.
