There is a section of the Arcadia level that focuses on collecting enzymes from bees. This is a necessary part of the game and you can be attacked by them.

The splicers are addicted to EVE and many references are made to this.

The player can. In fact there is a gene tonic called you can equip named Boozehound that gives health whenever you drink alcohol.

Timmy in the Neptune's bounty level is tortured by Sullivan to get information on an antagonist. He is electrocuted several times which can be heard in an audio tape. You find his corpse being electrocuted with the power still on.

some plasmids (hypnotize big daddy, insect swarm, enrage, security bullseye, incinerate!) show the player's hand as mutilated, with open sores, burns, scars, and wounds with bugs in them

Not so much squashed but a main antagonists head does get smashed in with a golf club during an cut scene. This scene cannot be skipped and will happen regardless of choices in the games.

The area where the Little Sister's were created and "housed" bears a striking resemblance to a mental hospital

Several enemies have cancer due to genetic damage caused by the DNA modification serum-itself compared to a "good" cancer-used to justify magic throughout the game.

In the backstory, there was a thriving market for gene-tailoring to make anyone look however they liked.

the first scene has the player enter rapture through an enclosed bathysphere, and upon arrival, is trapped inside as an enemy tries to break in to attack. the bathysphere is very confined and seemingly unescapable. (SPOILERS: the splicer is distracted and leaves you alone and unharmed)

There is an unskippable cutscene where a character demands the player character's kill him

(SPOILER) The player character is genetically programmed to obey someone anytime they say the phrase “Would you kindly.” A character manipulates them by constantly using this phrase to manipulate the player character throughout most of the game and even imprint them with false memories of their past.

The possibility of an abortion is discussed in one of the audio diaries, but it doesn't go further than that.

You spend a lot of time in a hospital, which has a ward called "Optimised Eugenics".

Through an audio log it is found out that a Jewish character worked with the Nazis. It's not explicit anti-semitism, but still upsetting.

Sander Cohen, one of the antagonists is mentioned to have had multiple sexual relationships with his male students before the events of the game. He can be killed, but it’s optional.

Depends on whether you rescue or harvest the Little Sisters. Rescuing results in the (canon) good ending, but harvesting even one results in the bad ending.

Little Sisters are young female characters that are at times treated like something to be used as a source of power and then discarded.
