The Story in Brief
Alan and all YP workers extend heartfelt gratitude for your support. We are dedicated to having the results of our work and reversing Alan's conviction benefit all people afflicted by vaccine damage, medical assault, and false accusation of infant harm/murder. Let's bring an end to these travesties.

Imprisoned for life (over six years so far) for shaken baby syndrome (SBS), Alan Yurko is now supported by an armada of medical experts and vaccine safety advocates who agree that his infant son was killed by an adverse reaction to vaccination and by subsequent iatrogenic complications in the hospital.

We acknowledge that genuine infant abuse exists. However, like the Yurkos, many people and families have been, and are being, unjustly assaulted by a medico-legal juggernaut that fails to do thorough and obligatory analysis. On this site are varied presentations of the baby Alan story, a glaring example of what can happen to anyone.

To help others as well as the Yurkos, we have valuable scientific articles about medical misdiagnosis in many cases of SBS, as well as information on vaccine reactions, subdural hematoma, retinal hemorrhage, non-traumatic pediatric rib injuries, iatrogenic complications and much more.

We are very grateful that some folks have already prevented false conviction because of information they got from this site. Alan has letters of thanks.
