Katie Holmes preparing for silent birth

*katie_holmes_silent_birth.jpgKatie Holmes is reportedly gearing up for the silent birth of her first child after Scientologists were spotted carrying signs into her home, reminding her to keep quiet during labor. On Monday, huge placards saying, “Be silent and make all physical movements slow and understandable,” were carried into the couple’s home to remind Holmes to deal with the extreme pain of childbirth quietly.

Like Tom Cruise, I’m all for making women suffer as much as humanly possible during childbirth. You know – strobe lights, false fire alarms, the doctor screaming “It’s a monster!” every few minutes. Sure, it may not serve any “medical purpose”, but I don’t see what that has to do with anything.
