Could possibly be construed as victim capitulating to their aggressor: one could argue that Jane Doe('s spirit) terrorizing Austin and Tommy is abuse, and SPOILER toward the end of the film, Tommy concedes to her and basically asks her to take him as a sacrifice in exchange for his son not being harmed.

SPOILER The spirits/corpses follow the main characters around the morgue, forcing them to hide and attempting to attack them repeatedly. Could definitely be construed as stalking.

The cat Stanley dies and it is all shown gruesomely. Fast forward from 34:00 to 37:00 to skip everything related to the cats death.

Things not related to the cat during these 3 minutes that will be skipped: Emile Hirsch sees shadow in mirror & the father cuts his own hand badly during autopsy.

Stanley the cat, after being slightly mutilated in the vent, gets his head snapped. So not really animal abuse it’s more like a mercy kill.

The morgue has an old cat, Stanley, who used to belong to Mrs. Tilden before her death. When Jane Doe is wheeled in, Stanley growls at the body, which is an early sign she isn't what she seems. The cat is later found heavily injured inside the vents with labored breathing. Tommy cradles him, before euthanizing him by snapping his neck, putting the body into the furnace after. The Tildens reflect on the cat and the mother's own passing for a bit before continuing with the autopsy. It's heavily implied the cat was injured by Jane Doe.

No but the coroners examine the vagina of a corpse, and later determine her soul to still be alive inside her body. So she didn’t consent to that vaginal exam.

It's a horror film about an autopsy, so you can expect some of this going in. As the autopsy goes on, Jane Doe shows increasingly bizarre traits, as, despite looking intact outwardly, she shows signs of her being savagely tortured internally, such as scars and burning of her organs, a tattoo on the inside of her skin, and shattered limbs. It's eventually revealed she's kept alive through supernatural means. Late into the movie, a character offers to 'feel what she felt', which results in him gaining her injuries in graphic detail.

Jane Doe has broken bones when they find her dead. Tommy (the dad) has broken bones later in the movie. Also, this movie is about an autopsy, which is shown on screen. At least twice you hear the sound of ribs cracking as they open the corpses' chests.

A corps with her eyes and mouth sewed shut is shown briefly a few times. The corps of a burn victim is shown and one of his eyes is plainly visible and has some damage from the even. On-screen mutilation does not occur.

(SPOILERS)

No dead bodies were possessed by a ghost, only animated by witchcraft, Jane Doe was a witch, not a ghost, because it is revealed in the movie when Tommy and Austin look at a part of her brain that she is actually alive. No ghosts appear in this movie.

Noone alive in the film has cancer, but cancer is referenced: Cause of death listed on one cadaver is mesothelioma. After the Y-incision, it's asked if some abnormalities under Jane Doe's skin may be melanoma. Neither body shows visible signs of cancer.

The opening scene includes some very bright camera flashes, about four or five, spaces a few seconds apart that was almost like a strobe light as well
Edit: there are a few more instances of this camera flash later in the movie during autopsies. Also, the whole screen flashes white whenever this effect occurs.
