Dear Angel Fury,
Hello, I am Senator Oletha Faust-Goudeau from the State of Kansas 29th District and I am responding to you regarding SB-128. But, first if I may, I would like to share a bit about myself.
I am the Mother of two teenaged daughters and I just celebrated my 50th Birthday August 5th.
I am the daughter of the "Late Oretha A. Faust" born 10-20-29 died Sept.28th-2001, she was the Founder of (MOM's) "Mother's Organized Movement" An organization that helped Women and children.
My "Mother" raised 7 children, 4 boys and 3 girls as a single parent and I am the fifth child born to Mrs.Oretha Faust. On her death bed she asked me to continue her legacy of Fighting for equal Rights for all People. Therefore, I know she cared deeply for the well being of Women and children, Just as I do!. And, for this Reason! only! is why, I ran for "Public office". To Honor my Mother's dying wish.
I commend and Respect all Women for their activism for Women and children's Rights as Human Rights, Weather it be, in the Home,school are in the Public arena. My Mother dedicated her entire life as an" Human Rights activist". My Mother is my" Hero". My Mother did a Great! Job raising me and my siblings as single Parent, she raised us to be Respectful and productive citizens. I can even remember her saying she had to be the Mother and the Father to us. However, as an adult I still wish my father would have played a more effective role in my life.
My two teenaged daughters have a wonderful relationship with their Father, and they have turned out to be well rounded young ladies active in school and our community. And, although I turned out just fine, being raised by a single Mother and becoming the First African American Woman Senator in the State of Kansas.
I truly believe, that Our children are most successful with a combination of support from both Parents, who are actively participating in their children's lives. I also,feel that Teachers and The Church, and the Community at large must play an active role in this equation for the positive out-come of Our children Success. However, in part of the district where I live in Wichita Kansas, "One of the key ingredients for the success of Our children is missing from the home - The (Father)!.
Angel, On a regularly basic I receive calls from Parents who share stories with me about their children being placed in Foster Care for various reason and Children being
killed because of drugs and gang violence. I even hear about the young girls who are about my daughters ages dropping out because they are pregnant and the young Father has left them alone and hopeless.
Angel, My Heart goes out to these Families! And most households are headed by"Single Mothers." "So , as a way to Help!!!!! ( Mothers and Children) I introduced"The Fatherhood Initiative Act".
SB-128, may not be the only solution are even the best solution! However, it was my attempt
to solve the problem within Policy and procedure. My sole purpose was to be pro-active with this
legislation by simple assisting New Fathers stay involved in their children's lives and to encourage all Fathers to become more Emotionally supportive and Financially Accountable in the raising of their children, which will directly benefit Our Society as a whole.
In closing, I feel this legislation will save tax payers money and Save Families! Because, We will Pay! one way or another! We can choose to be pro-active by investing
In", and Educating "Fathers"or Pay later to incarcerate or bury the Children of the absent Father!
I Respectfully, ask you to Please share your thoughts with me, Because I admit I don't have all the answers to solve the many problems our society has by myself. I am open to all suggestions you may have for me in the future and I appreciate you sharing your feelings on this issue.
Thank you, and may have a wonderful and Productive Day!

The below is from one of my blogs, I am horrified that the entire nation has started to realize and rethink the father supremacists’ act, that I find a Kansas senator has carried this forward; a Democrat, a woman, perhaps even a mother- I am even more shocked.
Kathleen Sebelius filled Wade Horn’s anti human rights FR initiatives at HHS but not before a suit for sex discrimination was placed on him in 2007. I urge you for the good of humanity the sake of countless lives to please talk with Kathleen Sebelius at HHS or the KS AG’s Office and Sandy Barnett at KCSDV.
This is a death sentence, to an already oppressed and continuing full force basic human rights violations. To be free from torture.
I am the lead plaintiff at the Inter American Commission Human Rights, a Kansas case leads suit against the US for Human rights Violations. Kansas is also hard copy cosigner to the petition which can be viewed in its entirety here http://tinyurl.com/cqkma4 on the Stop Family Violence website in NY. Please take a look at what this ‘act’ has done on a national level. We have come so far with such a long way yet to go.. please do not allow us to go even further back into the dark ages.
Please stop this, drop this or delay this for further hearings, the lives of many women and children literally depend on this. I will be as vocal as I can, albeit it may be to late- but vocal none the less.
Thank you for your time and Please feel free to contact me in regards to this matter.

KS SB 128 By Senator Faust-Goudeau “Fatherhood Initiatives Act” is genocide on Kansas women and children
I am just sickened by not following this- 2009 session KS SB 128 FR act. I have been busy just trying to stay safe- keep my daughter safe on a daily basis- it is truly a war zone.
Then, SB 128 below was -sent to me from another state- when a KS fellow humanist points out the almost already LAW that would further place women and children in the exact situation as my daughter and I have had to endure this past 15 years. There are simply no words I can say…. I feel as though the coffin is being sealed with a nail gun, faster than I can keep pulling them out….the air has left my lungs as though knocked out of me again.
I am not familiar with the politics, bills and other sleaze ball stuff in Kansas until it comes to my attention, from a 14 year old girl whose rapist- convicted of 20 felony counts of rape and sodomy, was given probation- so he could ‘go get custody of his children”. Kansas you recall Orlando Paul Cisneros- Most recall only the outrage of his crime against the beautiful she was 13 then (aged 14 by court) yes another easy on the perp technicality.
I think that most missed one small part in WHY Orlando Paul Cisneros was given probation as it was overshadowed by the obvious -a recommended 15 years ‘departed’ to probation-
Orlando Paul Cisneros was in part granted as soon as he was given probation he immediately as per the Fatherhood Indicatives Act- sought custody of his two children. Fortunately We the people kept the pressure on Judge Dowd- Media in the Court room of Judge Schmidt- those two children were spared thanks to a 5th probation violation by Cisneros.
But dear God, help all those other children and their mothers those perps whom have discovered the Criminal Rewards in the Judiciary.
The Fatherhood Initiatives Act is genocide to all battered women and their children, rather than SRS pay a mother and child food stamps and keep them safe- the FR act promotes welfare reform, getting rid of ‘dead beat dads’ ‘fixing them FORCING dads that are better off gone into a YOU WILL BE DAD. The incentives for the State- are faith based funds to PAY for bad dad drug dad therapy, to pay his attorney to get custody of his victims and to cause generations of irreparable harm – all because the STATE wants to remove a mom (and her children from State aid) hundreds and thousands of dollars to ‘fix’ defunct dad” Anger Management classes, Drug and alcohol classes PARENTING classes- these many agencies will make a a significant profit per child until that child ages through the system….and in most cases continues to beat rape and abuse both, the mother and the children.
So the Secretary can go in and say- yes we have less mother and children’s on state care-and all these defunct Mental Health Court Whores who must protect abusive dad we can ‘fix’ him we can cure him- at least we can treat him throughout his ‘fatherliness until the children age out” ($$) of course it works on one end..
the severe scars left – on the children and their mother- (no profit $$ to be made) no treatment… that’s if they survive. dead mothers and dead children. This is the cost of the Fatherhood Initiatives act. aka Welfare reform, another very hard hit to women and children in Kansas.
If ever there were at time to put aside our differences- and try to stop this-now would be a good time.
I will however will raise as much noise as I can demanding this not be entered into the statutes – and adding insult to injury the “HB 2314 Protective Parent Reform Act” which would have spared some- was completely tossed aside. Kansas Senate you should be ashamed- as you know each and everyone of you know all to well the costs of lives… the children, SRS and the parents who try to protect them.
Stay tuned- as I will muster what little i have left and give it all to stopping this last minute genocide …
for now I just needed to get this out-like throwing up- only I do not feel better. Thank you mad voter for eyes younger than mine and seeing this for me…. perhaps there still can be a chance.
