Martina Devlin: We will keep on marching until our politicians do their job

'Woman up and legislate' read the handwritten sign carried by a marcher just ahead of me at the Savita rally in Dublin on Saturday. She deserved a round of applause, and some of us gave her one.

It sparked a conversation about placards among the group of five women with whom I was walking towards Leinster House, and we decided at the next mass meeting, ours should read: 'Dail: Do Your Job'.

That's exactly what politicians haven't been doing for an indefensible, incomprehensible 20 years. That's exactly what a number of them in the current Government remain reluctant to do.
