Warning: This post contains Twilight spoilers a-plenty, so if you aren't familiar with the tale of Edward and Bella you might want to bookmark this one for later.

When the announcement came that Summit would be dividing Breaking Dawn into two films, the final chapter in the saga of Edward and Bella still had one big question hanging over it: "How are they going to handle the birth of Ed and Bella's daughter, Renesmee?" Well, over the last week we've been getting a few answers from Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, and Dawn's director Bill Condon, and while it looks like they aren't looking to cut out any of the "blood, sex, and feathers", the violent birth of Edward and Bella's daughter could happen off-screen entirely.

Of course, I'm a logical gal, and I can see their point, but that doesn't mean I'm not a little disappointed. Even as a non-fan of the franchise, the one thing I was looking forward to was getting to see how they handled this particularly 'wacky' moment in the story. But even if I were to keep my twisted sense of humor out of it, I can't help but feel that maybe it's about time this franchise got a little more grown up, and nothing says grown-up like viscera. But like I said, I'm all about logic, and in honor of my obsessive need to prioritize, I put together some pros and cons to watching Bella's special delivery on the big screen in all its gooey glory.
