4:33 am
"today in the bay's" chris poll underis in washington. >> reporter: congressional democrats with a warning. >> we are going to remember everyone who votes against the right to an abortion and this november, we'll use our voices and our votes. we're not going to let anyone forget. >> reporter: the bill would prohibit states from placing restrictions on access to abortion, a response to that leaked supreme court opinion indicating the high court is likely to strike down roe versus wade, but today's vote will be largely symbolic. democrats don't have the 60 votes needed to break a republican filibuster. >> if the maga republicans get their way, young girls will grow up in a world where if they become pregnant because of rape, they will have no choice but to carry their rapist's child. can you imagine? >> i think the widespread sentiment of my conference is this issue will be dealt with at the state level.

"today in the bay's" ian cull has the story. >> reporter: multiple sources
4:35 am
confirm the woman speaking in this video posted to youtube is the mother of a 3-year-old girl who died inside of a back room san jose church. investigators say it happened from an exorcism-like ritual done by the girl's family back in september. the video is weeks later. >> i could be negative about the things i saw, i wish her back and this and that but there is no point of me doing that because i cannot change what is, you know? it is what it is. >> reporter: the victim's mother, claudia hernandez, was arrested in january on felony child abuse charges just a few days after the video was posted. according to court documents we obtained, hernandez fwraut her to the church last september believing she was possessed by a demon because she'd sometimes wake up at night screaming or crying. according to the family statement to police, three family members held the girl down for seven hours. investigators say no one called 911 until at least two hours after the child died. the medical examiner's office
4:36 am
concluded the cause of death was asphyxia due to suffocation. the little girl's death just recently ruled a homicide. >> when she passed away, with me. of course i'm the mom. why wouldn't she be with me? a lot of people turned on me after my daughter passed away, a lot of people thought a lot of things because after my daughter passed away, because of how the situation looked but like i said, if you weren't there, you don't know what happened. >> reporter: the church where she died is the same one that was searched two weeks ago after 3-month-old baby brandon was kidnapped from home. the suspect in that case is a church member. >> it is exceedingly rare in the united states to hear about these kinds of stories. >> reporter: christopher mormon is the chair of philosophy and religious studies at cal state east bay. he says stories like the
4:37 am
exorcism rituals go wrong from time to time typically in fringe churches. >> all of the religions practice exorcisms and the more established a tradition is the more likelier this to have training that teaches the priest to recognize symptoms of psychological and emotional distress that would avoid this exact kind of situation that happened. >> reporter: the girl's mother, claudia hernandez, is being held in jail without bail. she denied our request for an interview. so far no one else in the church has been arrested. ian cull, "today in the bay." >> 4:37 now. santa clara county is warning covid cases are higher than even last year's delta surge. data from the county website shows the positivity rate has more than doubled over the last month, going from 2.4% in april to 5.2% yesterday. public health officer dr. sara cody says even with the hospitalization study the cofuss should be on preventing new
4:38 am
infections. >> if you're sick, you're going to miss work, you're going to miss school. you might expose somebody else who is not going to do well with covid and if you get sick with covid you're at risk of long covid which you really don't want to get. >> dr. cody said even without mandates, people should lower their risk doing things like wearing masks when in odd situations, gathering outdoors, also getting vaccinated and getting boosted when you can. 4:38 this morning. a legendary gadget is about to be gone forever. next here on "today in the bay," the apple product being discontinued. >> oh my goodness. i don't know where mine is. plus giving the gift of a subscription. the new way youtube is allowing some creators to cash in. stay with us. you're watching "today in the bay."
