Northern Ireland has decriminalized abortion and legalized same-sex marriage. The changes came after Northern Ireland’s regional government collapsed in 2017, giving British lawmakers the opportunity to mandate the changes in an amendment to a bill passed in July. On Monday, lawmakers in Northern Ireland met for the first time in nearly three years but were unable to stop the changes from taking effect at midnight.
