It is mentioned that Lorelai shouldn't be allowed to have a dog because she hasn't cared well for her previous pets.

Not technically, But especially in the earlier seasons, a lot of the main characters thing is that they eat lots and lots without gaining any weight, so you may want to watch out for that if that is triggering

1. in the flashback episode it shows lorelei as a teenager pregnant in the hospital, about to give birth. scene lasts for a long time as it is the main theme of the episode. 2. both of sookies births are frantic and unexpected, we can see her speeding away to the hospital. 3. SPOILER - lane has children but never shows her in the hospital 4. liz has a baby (again, in a frantic way) NONE OF THE SCENES ARE GRAPHIC OR SHOW THEM ACTUALLY PUSHING A BABY OUT

There is a character that describes thankfully only needing to have sex with her husband once in a way where we are meant to find that character silly/ funny as viewers. Asexuality specifically is not mentioned.

Only briefly. The local pastor and rabbi share the only worship space in town and are shown to be friendly with each other. They scold other characters for being dogmatic.

At one point a pastor is called in to give Rory, a young adult, a talk encouraging abstinence.
