So is it a "miracle from God", or just cells.

First human-pig embryos made, then destroyed

...They began by generating different types of human induced pluripotent stem cells -- when adult cells are turned back into stem cells -- and inserting them into pig embryos. Pigs were used because both the size and the development time for their organs are more similar to our own than, say, rats.
Next, the team members implanted these embryos into sows. To test the safety and effectiveness of their work, they stopped the experiment at four weeks.

So would these organs be considered human under the proposed abortion laws?

I suspect it would be considered an abomination by the Morality Police...
