I have pulled out the SD card of a Raspberry Pi quite often when it is booting. It is not something that is recommended. Most of the time it will boot again. But there is that occasion when the SD card will be marked as dirty and will not boot. Both the green and red LEDs will be on and the pi will not boot.

Turn off the Pi if it is not off already, take the card out and put it in another linux system. Make sure you unmount the SD card.

Issue the fdisk command to see what device the SD card is:
fdisk -l

You will probably see something like:
/dev/mmcblk0p1 ................. FAT32 (LBA) (This will be the boot device
/dev/mmcblk0p2 ................. Linux (data)

fsck /dev/mmcblk0p1
and
fsck /dev/mmcblk0p2

Take out the SD card when done and the Pi should boot again...
