A Voice for the Voiceless


"My hand is not the size of yours, but if I pierce it, I shall feel pain. If you pierce your hand, you also feel pain. The blood that will flow from mine will be the same color as yours. I am a man. The same God made us both."


- a slight alteration on the closing speach of Ponca chief, Standing Bear, at his trial requesting recognition as a human.

Standing Bear made the remark that his hand was a different color than that of the white judge before him. But the unborn can make no such remarks before a judge, and thus the genocide continues.


"My hand is not the color of yours, but if I pierce it, I shall feel pain. If you pierce your hand, you also feel pain. The blood that will flow from mine will be the same color as yours. I am a man. The same God made us both." - Ponca chief, Standing Bear.
