No Method Error for "view"

I'm getting this error:

/home/amy/javascript/node2/router.js:10 response.view("header", {}, response); ^ TypeError: Object #<ServerResponse> has no method 'view'


var fs = require("fs");

function view(templateName, values, response) {
  //Read from the template files
  var fileContents = fs.readFileSync('./views/' + templateName + '.html');
  //Insert values in to the content
  //Write out the contents to the response


module.exports.view = view;


var Profile = require("./profile.js");
var renderer = require("./renderer.js");

//Handle HTTP route GET / and POST / i.e. Home
function home(request, response) {
  //if url == "/" && GET
  if(request.url === "/") {
    //show search
  response.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
  response.view("header", {}, response);
