BOSTON (AP) — Supporters of a ballot question legalizing physician-assisted suicide for the terminally ill in Massachusetts have conceded defeat, even though the vote is too close to call.

A spokesman for the Death With Dignity Act campaign said in a statement early Wednesday that “regrettably, we fell short.”

With 93 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday, opponents of the measure were ahead by about 38,000 votes.
