Elizabeth Banks, American actress

It would be wise to ban assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and silencers. None of which is excessive.

Ronald Reagan, Former US president

One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine.

Giuliana Rancic,

agrees Surrogacy
Adoption was something we were very open to, but when we did the third IVF, we got the embryos and I would have put them into myself, but that was when we found the breast cancer. Part of the treatment is five years of tamoxifen, which can cause birth defects. So we said, ‘Dr. Schoolcraft, what now?’ He said the next step should be surrogacy because we had the embryos. As Bill likes to say, they w... See More

Christopher Meloni,

agrees Surrogacy
There was a friend of ours who worked with a girl who had said she would consider being a surrogate. We met her and right away she was awesome. We were looking for someone who could take care of themselves and it was pretty clear she could.

Charlton Heston, Actor and political activist

You could say that the paparazzi and the tabloids are sort of the 'assault weapons' of the First Amendment. They're ugly, a lot of people don't like them, but they're protected by the First Amendment - just as 'assault weapons' are protected by the Second Amendment.

Willie Nelson,

disagrees Fracking
It's bad for the land, bad for the farmers, bad for the soil. It's just all around a bad idea.

Bar Refaeli,

agrees Surrogacy
Who are they [Israeli government] to tell you what you can and can’t do – it is the basic right of every human. To love and to build a family!
Open uri20180824 4 13l2i9o?1535125340

Sean Lennon,

disagrees Fracking
Natural gas has been sold as clean energy. But when the gas comes from fracturing bedrock with about five million gallons of toxic water per well, the word “clean” takes on a disturbingly Orwellian tone. Don’t be fooled. Fracking for shale gas is in truth dirty energy.

Marissa Jaret Winokur, American actress

agrees Surrogacy
I have no regrets. I had an amazing surrogate who carried my son for me. I am so grateful to her. I can even say I am grateful for having cancer. I was always meant to be a mom, but if I didn't have cancer, I never would have had Zev. I would have had a kid, but not Zev, and I want Zev - tantrums and all.

Sarah Jessica Parker, American actress

agrees Surrogacy
[W]e've been trying to expand our family for a number of years and we actually have explored a variety of ways of doing so. [Surrogacy] was one of the things we discussed with seriousness that had real possibilities for us.

Tyra Banks,

agrees Surrogacy
The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here. He's got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik's mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.

Elizabeth Banks, American actress

agrees Surrogacy
After years of trying to get pregnant, exploring the range of fertility treatments, all unsuccessful, our journey led us to gestational surrogacy.

Sheryl Crow, American musician and actress

Anyone who does not fight for gun legislation to ban assault weapons cannot claim to be pro-life.
Open uri20180824 4 109q11d?1535126089

Ian Somerhalder, American actor, model and director

disagrees Fracking
Fracking is our biggest enemy right now in the U.S. Actually, not just in the U.S., because all our water systems are interconnected. Whether you're reading this in New York State or in Japan, fracking is screwing you over.
Open uri20180831 4 uq1saj?1535727113

Ronald Reagan, Former US president

This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety ... While we recognize that assault-weapon legislation will not stop all assault-weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals.

Paul Krugman, Economist (nobel laureate) and NY Times columnist

disagrees Tariffs
Trump’s tariffs are badly designed even from the point of view of someone who shares his crude mercantilist view of trade. In fact, the structure of his tariffs so far is designed to inflict maximum damage on the U.S. economy, for minimal gain.

Sylvester Stallone,

I know people get upset and go, 'They're going to take away the assault weapon'. But who needs an assault weapon? Like, really, unless you're carrying out an assault.

Matt Damon, American actor, screenwriter, and producer

disagrees Fracking
Everyone knows that fracking poisons the air and water. We wanted to show how it tears apart local communities and subverts democracies and corrupts political leaders and eviscerates all the things that Americans value.

Jimmy Fallon,

agrees Surrogacy
My wife and I had been trying a while to have a baby. We tried a bunch of things — so we had a surrogate.

Jenny McCarthy, American actress, model, television host, author, screenwriter, and anti-vaccine activist

agrees Vaccines
The idea that vaccines are a primary cause of autism is not as crackpot as some might wish. Autism's 60-fold rise in 30 years matches a tripling of the U.S. vaccine schedule.

Elayne Boosler, American comedian

The Vatican is against surrogate mothers. Good thing they didn't have that rule when Jesus was born.

Alyssa Milano, American actress, singer, producer

Net Neutrality protects us from online censorship and our ability to access and send information on the Internet. It prevents ISPs, such as cable and telephone companies (Ajit was legal counsel for Verizon) from preferring certain content, applications, or services from others.
Open uri20180605 4 7tf1gm?1528202130

John Oliver,

ISPs should not be able to engage in any sort of f*ckery that limits or manipulates the choices you make online.

Rhys Ifans, Welsh actor

You look at any culture and prohibition has invariably been unmitigated failure. It is just idiotic to criminalise any substance, I think. It needs to be controlled, managed. If you legalise something then you use the taxation from the sale of that drug top help people who become addicted to those substances. It is not going to go away. The way on drugs is being lost on a daily basis.

Jello Biafra, American singer

For every prohibition you create you also create an underground.

Russell Brand, British comedian, actor, and author

Nobody at all is helped by drugs being made illegal, unless of course there is a conspiracy to marginalise, condemn and persecute disenfranchised members of our global community. I'd hate to think that was the situation - that certain countries didn't matter, that certain classes didn't matter, that certain races didn't matter. So unless that's the situation, there's literally no reason to p... See More

Paul Krugman, Economist (nobel laureate) and NY Times columnist

agrees Carbon Tax
Emissions taxes are the Economics 101 solution to pollution problems; every economist I know would start cheering wildly if Congress voted in a clean, across-the-board carbon tax.

Richard Dawkins,

Children do need to be protected so that they can have a proper education and not be indoctrinated in whatever religion their parents happen to have been brought up in.

I mean, I thought about surrogacy at one point but then it just didn't cross my mind.

Nas, American hip hop recording artist

[Bitcoin] will evolve into an industry as big, if not bigger, than the Internet. My man Ben Horowitz really opened my eyes to that point. This isn't of the Internet age, bitcoin is its own age.

Tantoo Cardinal, Celebrity

Edward Fox, English stage, film and television actor.

Sovereign power is not a divisible condition: it is an absolute… Argument that seeks to etiolate and eventually eviscerate the native courage and deep-rooted spirit of Britons deserves to be despised and derided.

Ian McKellen, Actor and activist

It bothers me a bit that if Europe begins to break up then the idea that gay people should be looked after may go out the window. I think on those grounds, that’s why I’ll be voting to stay in.

Louise Bours, UKIP health spokesman and MEP for the North West region

If we don’t say goodbye to the EU, we will have to say goodbye to the NHS … Anyone still undecided needs to ask if they prefer the EU or the NHS, because it is clearer now than ever, that we cannot have both.

Alan Halsall, National Business for Britain Co-Chairman

As a businessman I know how important it is to keep a tight control over costs, but that doesn’t seem to be something that EU politicians understand. If we vote to leave ... we will be able to spend … money on our priorities here in the UK.

Julian Fellowes, English actor, novelist, film director and screenwriter, Conservative member of the House of Lords

I believe we should be out. It’s about philosophy, it’s about democracy, it’s about democracy versus autocracy … the European Union can’t be accountable because the elected MEPs have no real control over the Commission.

Eddie Izzard, English stand-up comedian, actor, and writer.

I’m back campaigning strongly on the EU referendum. It’s crazy to think we could be leaving. Churchill wouldn’t have done it. Running and hiding is not British. You have to be inside it to change it.
