This will happen. The human race will split like this and basically comprise 2 different races. This isn't something people in 1st world countries should be concerned about because we'll be able to afford enhancements.

The people in our society who refuse to get enhancements will be referred to as Neo Luddites and just be the equivalent to having an extremely large Amish population.

At some point their fear will subside and they'll get on board but not before unnecessarily losing generations of people.
