Use case for Ethereum: crypto-eugenics

If we register births on the blockchain, then I suppose that prior to having sex with someone you can register a security deposit, so that if a birth happens with you as a parent within the next 12 months then you lose $xxx (either donated to some charity or sent to your partner); they can (have their smartphone app) check that the deposit exists before doing anything. You can even integrate this into tinder: the tinder client would have a special icon saying “this person precommitted not to have children with security deposit size $x”.
