Summit confirms 'Breaking Dawn' to be PG 13

In a recent interview Melissa Rosenberg hinted that she appears to be leaning toward the ‘less is more’ theory about the birth scenes in 'Breaking Dawn' “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!’ 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.”

Today on her facebook page she clarified;
"Hi y'all! Not sure where some of you got the impression I intended to leave birth scene out of Breaking Dawn, but it's inaccurate. Of course the birth scene will be in there! And the sex scenes! And the feathers! And the blood! Perhaps you misinterpreted what I said about not needing to see BUCKETS of blood in order to convey the terror of the birth scene. But rest easy all! xoxo Mel"

All of this has led Summit to confirming to EW Popwatch that 'Breaking Dawn' will be PG 13.

What do you think about the PG13 rating? Is there anything that you all feel that the book will lose from this rating?
