#UK: Parliament Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage, Abortion For N. Ireland During Assembly Deadlock

[world politics news]

Parliament has voted resoundingly to extend same-sex marriage and access to abortion to Northern Ireland, bringing the region into line with the rest of the UK on the two significant social issues.

UK legislators voted on the Labour MP's bill because of a months-long deadlock that has rendered Northern Ireland unable to form a government in the region's devolved Assembly.
