In brief: NO

Cheerleaders do not increase the rate of teenage pregnancy.
Unprotected sex in teenagers does. Lets not unfairly blame a group of athletes for a societal problem.

In brief: They may!

With the modern undisciplined view so often held by adolescents, cheerleaders may well evoke sexual stimulation and thoughtless action.
This is not to criticize cheerleaders, it is a comment on our hedonistic culture.
