As a practical matter, the incident is a "Reichstag fire" type event that will be used by the pro-aborts and the Left to pursue their agenda.
Or like the killing of the German Ambassador in Paris, was used as the pretext for Kristallnacht.

The unfortunate fact is that all factions have their crazies who are willing to essentially sacrifice their lives to achieve a Phyrric victory. This is compounded when the mass media take one side of the argument. As an example, had conservatives, rather than liberals, controlled the major outlets of opinion in 1963, the assassination of Kennedy by a Marxist crazy might have been used to resurrect restrictions on domestic Communists and other leftists that had fallen out of favor after the early 1950s.
