Abstract
Following a neo-Malthusian rationality, the Tunisian independent state has promoted biomedical contraception and legalized abortion to lower the national fertility rate. Whereas for 40 years non-reproduction has been the objective of official demographic policies, IVF private clinics are a flourishing industry. In this article, I explore the contradictory effects of (non-)reproductive biomedical technologies by showing how they contribute to the non-reproduction of certain categories of citizens and force others to reproduce.
