Could education work?

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Planned Parenthood is reporting that abortions in Wisconsin are at their lowest point since 1974 after the fourth consecutive year of decline.

Is it possible that educating women on their options for birth control (medical and otherwise) could help prevent abortions better than say, pretending that there aren't any?

Even pro-lifers are excited!

Barbara Lyons, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life, said she is “extremely elated” that the number of abortions dropped again last year.

“It represents life,” she said. “It represents 1,313 babies saved from abortion and the mothers saved from the impact of an abortion.”

Respectfully, i'm not convinced abortion as an option is something more education will impact. It seems that the media is in agreement:
