Any of us who have read Breaking Dawn have thought "How in the world are they going to make this PG-13?" The final installment of the Twilight Saga involves lots of sex, and a bloody birthing scene, which all Twihards are adamant stay in the two films.

The screenwriter, Melissa Rosenberg acknowledges this, "On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are, ';It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!'"

But Summit plans on keeping it's PG-13 rating. Some fans are angry and others are relieved because an R rating could've meant they wouldn't have been able to see their beloved vampires, but Rosenberg says she isn't worried about the film losing what made the book a bestseller.

"For me it's actually more interesting to not see it. You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth. … It doesn't mean it's any less evocative of an experience."

So what do you think? Can the film be done without seeing the at-home, vampire-style, cesarean? Or will you be one of those fans who will start virtual riots on the message boards of your favorite Twilight fansites?
