Somebody did tell me that, Huck Finn has also been banned.

Romeo climbed the wall with a rope ladder.
Rapunzel was the lady with the long hair.
At any rate, it appears in both instances their relationship was consensual.

I don't recall reading that either of these two young ladies were older than the age of consent which is likely why they were kept locked away in difficult to access 2nd story rooms. The cunning young men used different techniques to woo the girls but
in the end if it was today they would be facing charges of corrupting the morals of a minor so maybe consentual may be a bit of a broad a statement.

The age of consent back in the day was around 12 for girls, 14 for boys. Not sure how old these kids were, but parents certainly had their hands full keeping kids apart it seems. The heart wants what it wants.

Is it inappropriate for the prince to withhold necessary medical treatment for a long term coma because the treatment is perceived to have negative side effects?

I've often wondered if the story isn't really another allegory, like Beauty and the Beast. Only in Sleeping Beauty it really about kissing the girl who doesn't necessarily get all the attention ("sleeping") and the man finding himself with a greater beauty than if he had just chased the "pretty girls."

And LordEd, you would have gotten a PM about your medical attention comment, but here we are, "kissing as medicine may be a antidote to a great many of the World's ills."
Is it okay to have friends on all sides of the political spectrum? Or do I have to choose?

Just a different direction. Rights of an unconscious patient to get/deny treatment.
