You may not like it, but that doesn't mean it's wrong. I bet some people 
on death row are really irritated that we have forced our definition of 
right and wrong onto them.

I have yet to see a reasonably convincing logical argument that humans 
are any different in any meaningful way than any other mammal. All the 
arguments I have heard to date rest in some way on religious, and 
usually Biblical, interpretations of the world - which are not logical, 
but emotional. But, even those arguments rest on a lot of 
presuppositions and conjecture.
