Could headless human clones be created to grow organs?

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - BioTech, MedTech, Gene Therapy and Stem Cells

British scientists have created a frog embryo without a head.

Could the same procss used to create the headless frog be adapted to grow human organs such as hearts, kidneys, liver and pancreases in an embryonic sac living in an artificial womb?
