There are multiple scenarios where a player has either direct involvement in that choice of them dying, or it happening as a result of other choices unrelated to the family members.

Depending on interpretation, yes. If Gale surrenders the crown to Mystra and gains her forgiveness it could be read as him forgiving Mystra (who is arguably his abuser). Shadowheart and Lae’zel are also both initially very defensive of Shar and Vlaakith respectively but they can both move past their oppression and reject their respective goddess.

Yes, and the player can chose to help them and befriend them. Stock up on potions of animal speak if you want to help, or avoid animals in general if you wish to avoid the sadness entirely. The game is fulfilling either way on the animal front!

Mostly in Act 3. There’s a shapeshifter whose transformations involved unnaturally contorting the body like breaking bones and this happens onscreen multiple times throughout the act when talking to seemingly ordinary people. If you go into the room at the brothel that has two female characters in a cutscene, you will see one of the women transform into a mindflayer onscreen.

No but there is a highly avoidable single line of dialogue where a character mentions the possibility of mutilating the player character’s genitals in response to certain choices. To avoid, if the character you are romancing confronts you for cheating, do not select the dialogue option Don’t be so dramatic, it was just sex

Often your characters are covered in blood due to fights, and you can find stray organs and guts in various battle fields. There are also gory scenes and audio gore accompanied them, even if the visual pans away.

There are several natural bodies of water in each act. Act 1 has a beach next to a sea, several rivers, a swamp/marshland, and an underground lake, plus several waterfalls and so many caverns. Characters simply walk through the water and cannot drown as far as I can tell, and I haven’t encountered any monsters coming out of water yet (halfway through act 2).

Act 3, during a suest where you face a hag. If you kill the hag or throw the "hag bane" potion at her (which is what you're supposed to do), she will v*. It's not showed (we see the hag lean forward outside of the screen) but there's sound. Cutting the sound was enough for me.

Kind of? In act 2 there’s a location called the House of Healing, which is essentially an abandoned hospital where you fight Malus Thorm, the surgeon. It is an unskippable fight (unless you ignore major parts of act 2’s main quest) due to a key item being obtained from Malus’ corpse.

One of the companions believes he has to essentially blow himself up to defeat the BBEG (the end game boss), and tries to convince the player character to allow him to do so. He brings it up multiple times throughout the game, believing it’s what must be done. You can, however, convince him not to if you have a strong bond with him and choose the right dialogue options.

There are many forms of racism and hatred towards other groups within this game.
The druids in the Emerald Grove are clearly hateful towards the tieflings taking refuge in the grove; calling them a poison, treating them like something vile that must be removed.

Many NPCs will show prejudice or mistrust towards your tav if you choose to be a drow or tiefling.
You can choose dialogue options towards Barcus Wroot that could be considered microaggressions, and I’m sure there are still more chances for you to choose prejudiced or racist dialogues options, as you can choose to do or say some pretty cruel things.
