As the UK bill to legalise abortion and gay marriage cane into effect in Northern Ireland, the DUP called a special meeting of Stormont to celebrate the fact.

“We have always embraced social change and are proud to be supporting the rights of women and people of all genders by opening these new facilities.
“I, personally, am so pleased to see these new measures become law that, although I am not a minister, I will be taking a minor officiating role at the first LGBT wedding.
“I will also, personally, be performing the first abortion…”
