Dereferencing a nullptr is already undefined behaviour. You have already "broken the machine" before making the call, so anything that happens now - including termination of the program - is possible.

Because the machine is broken, defensive programming is the wrong answer. You should use methods outside the C++ model (e.g. Windows Structured Exception Handling) in order to restart the program from a known OK point, or abort gracefully with an intelligible message to the user.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
