Alan Dershowitz: 'No Constitutional Right to Abortion' but 'no right to live either'???

Alan Dershowitz can not find a right to Abortion in the Constitution:
I can’t find anything in the Constitution that says you prefer the life of the mother, or the convenience of the mother if it’s an abortion by choice, over the potential life of the fetus. Look, I think women if they’re required to not have abortions could die and could — so I favor a woman’s right to choose. But I can’t find it in the Constitution. And everything I favor I don’t think is necessarily constitutionally based.
But apparently he sees no right to live either:
Roe v. Wade and Bush v. Gore “represent opposite sides of the same currency of judicial activism in areas more appropriately left to the political processes… Judges have no special competence, qualifications, or mandate to decide between equally compelling moral claims (as in the abortion controversy)… [C]lear governing constitutional principles … are not present in either case."
One wonders how Alan Dershowitz imagines liberty functions if one has no right to live and engage in those liberties.

H/T Breitbart.
