Seamless is a New Yorker's best friend when it comes to ordering lunch, dinner, and ... Plan B?
A Lower East Side bodega is selling emergency contraception for $76.99 via the online food ordering service.
Corner Grocers, at 140 Orchard St., has recently listed Plan B One Step — at a 50 percent markup from its average over-the-counter price — along with high-end products like gluten- and wheat-free noodles, coconut milk ice cream, and Cafe Grumpy cold brew, as one Reddit thread noted.
Plan B One-Step is a single pill that reduces a woman's chance of conception if she takes it within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. It can be purchased without a prescription at drugstores and pharmacies, where it typically costs between $40 to $50, according to Planned Parenthood.
"A whole 50% higher in normal price but cheaper than child support," a Redditor commented.
As the store's Seamless page says, emergency contraception, which is listed as a new product, is "Not for Regular Birth Control."
But women who feared the impact that a Trump presidency would have on birth control access considered — some more earnestly than others — stocking up on the morning-after pill in the days after the Nov. 7 election.

That, except the morning after pill. #NotMyPresident
Real Talk: Gonna stock up on the morning after pill between now and December. What's coming doesn't look good so I suggest you do likewise.— Frenchie/Fro Dameron (@lafemmeluna) November 9, 2016
President-elect Donald Trump has promised to appoint anti-abortion Supreme Court justices, and vice president-elect and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, who has worked to slash Planned Parenthood funding, signed into law this March one of the strictest abortion measures in America, banning the procedure when a fetus has a disability.
Delivery is free from Corner Grocers on Seamless with a minimum order of $14.
