    Politics in the US are hopelessly entangled with religious ideology and fear. It will, sadly, be a long time before enough elected persons have both the desire and courage to pass a law allowing this.

    I can't discern that at this juncture. I'm not sure if that can be ascertained right now.
    Right now, the U.S. is going to seemingly random extremes at seemingly random intervals. The government appears to have moral moments, and then capitalist moments, and despite these two not being mutually exclusive, the government seems to be demonstrating their position that they are. I personally don't think they should legalize it, as replacement implant parts ought to be non-edited to reduce rejection hazards, but I can't say when or whether they might.
