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.

Bar Refaeli,

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!

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.

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.
Open uri20180914 4 1kg9ntd?1536914403

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.

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.

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.

Elizabeth Banks, American actress

It would be wise to ban assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and silencers. None of which is excessive.
Open uri20180831 4 17irr2?1535730048

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.
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.
Open uri20180831 4 1bkbfg3?1535726243

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.

Mark Ruffalo,

disagrees Fracking
We're clearly coming to the end of the fossil fuel era. We have the technology to shift to renewable energy, we have the will of the people. The only thing that's keeping us back is the fossil fuel industry's hold on our political system. That's what we need to change.
Open uri20180824 4 1llorlg?1535124046

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.

Ronald Reagan, Former US president

One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine.
Open uri20180817 4 a2nign?1534502188

Jimmy Kimmel, American television host

No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life. It just shouldn’t happen. Not here.

Mark Ruffalo,

Taking away Net Neutrality is the Authoritarian dream. Consolidating information into the hands of a few controlled by a few. Dangerous territory.
Open uri20180621 4 1np2t9o?1529618623

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.

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.
Open uri20180507 4 17w4vcw?1525666635

Jello Biafra, American singer

For every prohibition you create you also create an underground.
Open uri20180223 4 19ofade?1519391451

Kim Kardashian, American television personality

agrees Surrogacy
The fact that this is just what we can do these days, I'm like really thankful... Like I'm seriously so grateful for [our surrogate] and that someone is just so like selfless and kind to do this.

Climate change is not hysteria – it's a fact
Open uri20170424 4 myka81?1493025274

Gwyneth Paltrow, Actress, singer, and food writer

The science is still inconclusive about GMOs and there are arguments that they could possibly be harmful and they could be possibly be incredibly beneficial and drought-resistant and have extra nutrition. But at this point we just don’t know.
Open uri20170328 4 y24kkf?1490730601

Ian McKellen, Actor and activist

disagrees Brexit
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.
Open uri20160420 3 1kg8mvu?1461161828

Alan Halsall, National Business for Britain Co-Chairman

agrees Brexit
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.
Open uri20160418 3 1coqctm?1460993806

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

agrees Brexit
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.
Open uri20160822 3 wpbmmi?1471894468

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

disagrees Brexit
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.
Open uri20160815 3 k5iyf2?1471286304

Michael Caine, English actor and author.

agrees Brexit
You cannot be dictated to by thousands of faceless civil servants who make these rules … we buy more from them than we sell to them [the EU] … I sort of feel certain we should come out.
