Why use make_response on the password don't match return?

here in the User resource, why use make_response instead of just return the string of json?

the response it make didn't get used elsewhere so why use make_response?

def post(self):
        args = self.reqparse.parse_args()
        if args.get("password") == args.get("confirmed_password"):
            return marshal(user, user_fields), 201
            #http code 201 created
        return make_response(
                {"error":"Password and confirm password do not match"}
            ), 400)
