We can see why that was cut from the game and replaced instead with the “Hated” reputation icon. Just in case it’s not clear to you that Vault Boy’s kicking mom in the womb, that gown helpfully indicates baby’s on board.

Originally, you would have gotten the Childkiller reputation if you killed any kid, even accidentally. Pretty amazing they were considering this icon when Fallout 3 doesn’t allow any child character to even be attacked. Menze said this is the only Vault Boy image to ever be cut from Fallout 2, but he’s actually forgetting about the infamous and difficult-to-obtain “Simultaneous Wifebeater/Animalkiller” reputation icon which is a real thing that totally existed:
