vegetarianism??

hi
sometimes i tell my friends who eat non-vegetarian  food to try and 
resist eating them since they are killing an innocent life. but they 
try to argue with me that being a vegetarian doesnt change the 
picture. because being a vegetarian means killing plants. so does it 
really matter if we kill plants or animals ? where is it mentioned 
that animals should not be eaten ? are we justified in telling others 
to resist themselves from eating non- veg food since we are killing 
plants ?? the only diff i have found is that animals show resistance 
when they are to be killed where as plants dont. i know this is not a 
very appropraite question for this particular group. but i am 
optimistic that i will get good response.
thank u in advance
sandeep
