(CNSNews.com) -- Forty-four percent of likely voters now consider themselves to be pro-life, according to a recent telephone survey by Rasmussen Reports.

This is the highest percentage of people opposed to abortion since Rasmussen began polling in 2003.

The survey results narrow the gap between pro-life voters and the 48 percent of likely voters who consider themselves pro-choice.

A recent report from the Pew Research Center found similar results, with 43 percent of the public saying that abortion should be illegal in all or most cases, and 51 percent saying it should remain legal.

The Rasmussen survey, which took place between June 30 and July 1, asked: “Generally speaking, on the issue of abortion, do you consider yourself pro-choice or pro-life?”

The  findings indicate a sizable increase in the number of voters who consider themselves pro-life over the past year and a half. In January 2013, Rasmussen surveyed likely voters and found that only 36 percent were opposed to abortion, which represented an all-time low.

According to Rasmussen, the margin of error for the survey is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
