James Patrick Johnston, D.O. is the same person as Patrick Johnston, D.O., a family practice physician and the founder and director of the Association of Pro-Life Physicians.[1]He also founded the Alliance to Reform Education Funding to fight public school funding and promote Christian home-schooling (www.StopSchoolLevies.org). Dr. Johnston advocates the application of Biblical law in the U.S.

He operates a web site, www.rightremedy.org, subtitled "A Ministry of Dr. Patrick Johnston and family," in which he advocates re-criminalizing abortion in the state of Ohio.[2]

He is listed as a medical supporter of ballot measure 48 in Colorado in 2008 that would define a fertilized human egg as a legal person under Colorado law.[3] The measure would confer full legal rights and upon fertilized human eggs as though they were grown, independent persons, which could potentially lead to the outlawing of some forms of contraception and the re-criminalization of abortion.


Johnston was born the oldest of five boys in 1970 in Greenville, South Carolina, where his parents were studying to be medical missionaries. His mother was a licensed practical nurse and his father was a registered nurse. In 1989 he graduated from Nease High School in St. Augustine, Florida, and he worked his way through undergraduate school at the Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. He was employed as a phlebotomist at the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital while an undergraduate. He graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology from the Florida State University. He co-founded a group committed to lobbying for a statewide ban on abortion in Ohio. In 2008, he ran for state representative in the 94th district in Ohio. [4]
