We’re Celebrating Same Sex Marriages and Abortion Rights in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is changing the law for allowing same sex marriage and access to abortion services by February and March 2020.

Westminster passed this these laws in July 2019, which took effect on Monday 21 October 2019. The Northern Ireland Assembly can influence the law. However, these laws were still passed by Westminster.

The new legal framework for accessing abortion services in Northern Ireland is now in line with the 2018 United Nations (Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women) report.

Northern Ireland Secretary, Julian Smith said: “At the latest, the first civil same-sex marriages will take place on the week of Valentine’s Day 2020.”
