As the clock struck midnight, same-sex marriage and abortion became legal in Northern Ireland for the first time. Campaigners – who have fought for decades – celebrated the watershed moment for women’s and gay rights, following an 11th-hour attempt by the region’s assembly to block change, which collapsed into farce. But while this momentous social change sees Northern Ireland finally aligned with the rest of the UK, we are joined by Christian campaigner Andrea Williams, who calls the move ‘regressive’ rather than ‘progressive’, and former journalist Melissa Thompson who says the legislation is long overdue.

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
