Federal agency that any person intentionally affixed a label bearing a 
``Made in America'' inscription, or any inscription with the same

not made in the United States, the person shall be ineligible to

        disorder, physical injury, or physical illness, including a 
        life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from 
        the pregnancy itself, that would, as certified by a physician, 
        place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is 
        performed.

funds).

the schedules of controlled substances established by section 202 of
