Not necessarily abuse, but Jones’ cage is flung by the alien and then thrown around a bit by Ripley during her escape. Can make cat owners uncomfortable.

In the third act of the film Ripley makes it a point to recover Jones the Cat to evacuate him with her before the ship self-destructs. There's a moment of suspense when she has to abandon him when she catches sight of the monster but ultimately she gets herself and Jones off the ship. He's sleeping peacefully in her lap in the final scene.

The crew's attempts to remove an alien parasite latched onto a crew member's face involve a number of close-ups of the creature, showing it in full detail. The prop, made of various seafood bits among other things, is realistic-looking and may be unnerving for some.

The chestburster is very snake like but still not a snake

They try to cut off the “face-aliens” digit, aka finger

Dallas was captured by the alien and asks her to kill him towards the end of the movie, she uses the flamethrower to do it. You do not see him get burned but you know it happens

An android's head is squashed and knocked off of his body. His white "blood" is very visible and gets everywhere. A pretty gross scene.

It’s implied that the alien penetrates a crewmember vaginally with its tail, but it happens off screen

Most of the movie is spent with the characters being hunted by the titular Alien, being found and then killed, which while not quite stalking, could be potentially triggering

Well gee, the cover's only used as the emblem for jumpscares... In all seriousness, the Facehugger leaps from its egg violently, and Davis is attacked by the Alien suddenly when searching the airvents.

As spoiler free as possible: a character attacks Ripley. At first his sweat looks weirdly white. As he is trying to suffocate her other characters come in to stop him and hit him. He starts to spew white fluid of his mouth a little bit. Later when the crew wakes him back up the same white fluid leaks out of his mouth before he is able to talk.

Cain is placed in Sickbay when the Facehugger attacks him. There is also an endoscopy (a camera inserted into the stomach) video shown.

Assisted suicide in the 2003 edition (the director's cut), but not in the original.

I‘d say it could be triggering that Lambert panicks all the time, especially when the Xenomorph is in front of her before she dies

There is extreme strobe effects throughout the majority of the end of the film that were uncomfortable even for someone without epilepsy

If you count 'having an extraterrestrial larvae gnaw its way out of your chest cavity' to be 'giving birth,' then yes, there is a birthing scene.

People awaken from, & enter the hibernation pods in their underwear. No sexy lingerie, undershirts, boxers, Sigourney Weaver at end in basic bikini pants.

There is no literal sexual assault, but there are enough horrific metaphorical allusions to it that a sexual assault survivor would probably have their trauma triggered. Phallic objects being forcibly shoved down throats is a recurring element.

Lambert is trans! This is not addressed in the script other than in a brief view of her personnel file.

The ending could be seen as rather bittersweet. Well, at least Jones survive...

A spaceship is shown already crashed on a planet. The main ship in this film is destroyed by the end.

The alien is shown falling out of the space shuttle to its death. More of a blown into space scene than a typical falling scene.

The film's Signature Scene involves a parasitoidic alien larva gnawing its way out of a man's chest cavity.

Not a typical "mushroom cloud" type explosion, but there is a massive (easily nuke-sized, if not bigger) explosion that occurs in space.
