Abortion becomes legal in Northern Ireland


BELFAST—ABORTION and same-sex marriage are set to become legal in Northern Ireland, after a group of local lawmakers failed in a last-minute bid to thwart the London-ordered liberaliza­tion of the laws. Abortion is currently illegal in the British-ruled province but will be decriminal­ized at midnight on Monday.
